I have lost hibernation completely
« on: August 26, 2006, 07:50:09 PM »
I have tried everything.
Going back using system restore.
Reinstalling XP in repair mode.
(and reinstalling all the drivers)

Nothing.

I have lost hibernation completely.

Any ideas, hints?
Thanks a lot

If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.

I forgot to say I tried that as well, no dice.
It was working before, but not anymore.
It must be something I installed...

Argh! I tried uninstalling so many things already.
This is very frustrating... because I use hibernation everyday and without it the lappy doesn't even warn me when it's running out of batteries...

Update.
Before it would just not go into hibernation.
After all the voodoo (full reinstall etc), it doesn't come back after hibernation.

hard to say. System contains loads of information and error messages, none of them containing anything related to hibernation that I can see.

I get no BSOD, just that when the resuming bar gets filled completely, the computer never comes back to life and it has to be restarted. So probably, no log?

Thanks a lot

in event viewer, go to action and clear all events (system), then reproduce the problem. go back to event viewer and post a screenshot system events.

will do, thanks.

However, here is some new info.
I have selected 'never hybernate'. But when I close the lid and open it again,  it doesn't even acknowledge the USB ports. Whatever you plug, it doesn't find.
   
Plus, it burns through batteries like never before. With suplementary batteries, it gets ~3hrs, before 6hrs.

Sometimes, when I have no USB alive, I close all programs, preparing to reboot, and then mysteriously, after I close some program (last time, it was opera) it will go straight into hybernation mode!
   
So my hypothesis is that there is a program that is doing something strange, that interferes with the command for going to hybernation. It could well be opera.

I have noticed that opera had one of these Download pages where it is expecting you to say 'save'... maybe that was it. Will report any new progress :)
