Restart on hibernate


S

Sirius

Hello,

My pc will not hibernate. I tried updating BIOS. But it did not help. When I
click hibernate, it gets to the black screen with the blue progress
indicator then it restarts.
KB does not say much.
I am trying to save power and startup time.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.

How much free space do you have on your HD? Did you check 'wake on LAN' is
disabled in BIOS?

I have a big HD, like 200GB with 5 partitions. I have WinXP
installed on the G partition, and 13GB used space and 28.3 GB free.
I was not familiar with that setting, I only made sure ACPI
is enabled. I will try your suggestion right now.

Thank you.

Thank you for the link, I read trough it. It was very useful.
I went to my motherboard company Abit website, but they did not have drivers
newer than 2006. It is an Nvidia nforce chipset, though. So I went to Nvidia
and got drivers from them, also it's an Nvida video card, got new drivers
for that too. And now hibernation works. Thank you so much again.

Yes, but that was not the problem.
It was the Motherboard and video drivers from NVIDIA. Please see my earlier
post.

Thank you.

Yes, I saw your earlier post where you had fixed your problem. I was
actually asking because a friend of mine had a similar problem. Stopping the
Ad-Aware 2007 Service when not being used appears to have solved her problem.
Thanks for the information.
