    Hi Everyone. I am currently running Windows ME and my computer goes straight into hibernation mode about 20 seconds after I turn it on. I can move the mouse which will power it up again, but then it goes straight back into hibernation and its driving me crazy. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    20 seconds is less than the choices in control panel, but have you looked in the Power Option settings to see what's enabled?

    Go into the Power icon in the Control Panel, change the power scheme to "Always On" and change everything else to "Never". Click Apply - OK afterwards. I don't recall if you need to reboot afterwards. If you do, it'll prompt you to do so.

    Stay away from advanced power management options, such as hibernate, suspend, standby, etc..

    I already have the power management checked to "always on." However, I will boot up the computer and just as my desktop comes up the computer goes into hibernation. Then it takes me about 4 or 5 reboots before the computer will stop going into hibernation.
