Preventing wake-on-lid-open after hibernation

Hi

When I shut windows XP down, the notebook does only wake up after
pressing the power switch.

When I hibernate windows, the next time I open the lid, the notebook
DOES wake up however.
I am looking for a way to prevent this. there is no option in the bios
for it.

After hibernation the bios welcome screen does not display, and I
cannot enter the bios.
My grub bootmenu is accessible however, and I can boot linux, so I am
certain that windows did not just suspend to ram.

Nevertheless. after I remove the battery for a short time (and put it
back in), opening the lid will NOT wake up the notebook and the bios
screen will appear at the next power up.

I am aware of the differences between hibernate and suspend. I am
certain that I choose hibernate each time, and that windows is indeed
writing the content of the ram to disk, and not consuming any power
while it is switched of.
I am not using Vista with its combinated suspend/hibernate option

Normally the notebook should not even know that I hibernated windows
instead of shutting it down. Somehow it does. Can anyone solve this
mistery?

And can anyone tell me how to stop it?

Hugo,

I "believe" if you go to control panel and select power options there is a
place to select what happens when the lid is lifted.... I don't have my
laptop with me to be sure that is where I found it, but I think it is.

I only found a setting for closing the lid, you can set that to shut-
down/hibernate/standby etc.

But there does not seem to be any setting for opening the lid

If you set action fot the lid to None, what happens?

I'll be darned!
If I set it to do nothing on close, it indeed does nothing on opening
either!
I would never have guessed that.

Thank you!
