Hi all

i have my pc set to hibernate when the lid is shut, however it keeps changing to standby and checking the password option when it wakes again.

I know a bit about hibernation but this is a tad odd.

I go to Power options and select advanced and uncheck the password on resume option and select hibernate when the lid is closed and apply so i dont think im doing anything immediately wrong

Any ideas appreciated:confused:

Some XP don't have Hibernate by default. On mine I have to hit
Start>>>Turn off Computer>>>Shift and Standby changes to
Hibernate. Then hit "enter" or "h" and and away she goes.

On our upgraded XP, Hibernate is there by default. From what I read newer XP have "standby".You have to bring up "hibernate"
manually. I hope this helps. And by the way I use hibernate regularly, it's dead handy for re-start. :eek:
