Why hibernate if not in power settings?


P

I have told Vista not to go into hibernation at all, in my power settings.
In the Sleep option, I have hybrid sleep turned off (for both options), and
under Hibernate, I have never for both battery and charging. But after
several hours of inactivity, the computer will go into hibernation (the
sleep mode is suposed to turn on after 30 mins of inactivity--and it
does--normally it goes in and out of sleep mode without a problem). Is there
any other section that I can check, that will turn my computer from sleep
into hibernation? I"d rather it stayed in sleep mode.

OK Shawn I did that. Up till this point I'm not sure its had the opportunity
to go into hibernation (to see if this solves it), but I'll post back if it
doesn't work. Thanks.

Instructions on disabling and enabling Vista hibernation here:

If hibernation is disabled by this method, only sleep will appear
in the power settings. Hibernation and hybrid sleep settings will
not be available.
