    What my computer has been doing for about a day now is when its on, about every 2 seconds - 30 minutes it goes into a hibernation mode sort of thing. The moniter goes off, it says (auto detect entering power save) then the power button turns orange. But my computer is still running. Any idea how to stop this from happening or how to get out of hibernation mode?


    I'm also sure its not my computer fan speeds because they are all below 30, system is 38c

    Go into the Control Panel and then into Power Options.

    Change the power scheme to "Always On" and change all the other settings to "Never".

    Go into the Hibernate tab and disable it.

    Click Apply - OK, then restart your computer.

    Your computer and monitor will stay on continuously from now on - until you're ready to shut down normally.

    After you shut off your computer normally(via the Start menu), the monitor will go black and the light will turn amber. If you leave it in this sleep mode, it'll automatically start up when you start your computer.

    If you prefer to completely shut off both your computer and your monitor, just press the monitor power button after you shut off your computer.

    It sounds like a hardware issue to me.

    Let's see if someone jumps in that can assist you.
