    Hello All
    I have a new Dell 8300 running xp.
    When i use hibernate some times the cpu will not
    come out of hibernate.
    I called Dell and tech support said that hibernate
    should be used on notebook computers
    to conserve the batteries not on desktops.
    And to use standby instead.
    Does this sound right?
    There is no reset on this cpu.
    Thank You

    It's true that Hibernate is for notebooks, and PCs has Standby. Check your Power Settings (Control Panel > Power) and see what kind of settings it's in. You should be able to change the settings by selecting a premade setting (like Home / Desk etc)
