standby and hibernation problem

Guest

My Thinkpad T60 seems to have problems in the standby/hibernation modes.
When I come back and press "Fn" (or any other key!), the computer sounds like
it comes back to life (and the wireless symbol re-lights up), but the screen
stays black. The only thing that brings it back is turning off the computer
(which requires holding down the power button for about 10 seconds), and then
restarting the computer. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Hi Holly,

How much RAM does your computer have? Has the computer always acted
in this manner, or has there been a change to hardware or software
that might have precipitated the problem?

I had this problem recently with the latest drivers for an Nvidia
graphics card. I then tried various older drivers and though some
behaved better than others, I didn't get rid of the problem entirely
until I dumped the card.

Hi,
My laptop has 1 GB of RAM. I just bought it a month ago, and the problem
has been happening (intermittently, I think, although I think it may only
happen after leaving the computer for more than 30 min). I didn't add any
new software or hardware to the computer.

Cheers,

Holly

Hi Holly,

You could remove hibernate from power management then reinstall it.
