    Hi everyone. I have an issue.
    When I go to put my laptop in hibernate (I have tried going to start >> hibernate and also just going to start and clicking the power symbol which is set to hibernate), it does the normal black out and starts to power down. All the lights go off except for the power light and "num lk" light. After sitting for a second it starts up again. I know it can hibernate because it has done so before. When this problem has happened before, I just will try again and it'll eventually successfully hibernate but it's getting irritating.
    I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with Windows Vista Home Basic.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    do you have any mouses or such because my usb mouse tends to move on its own so it never stays in one place so if i want to (which i suggest you dont do) hibernate it will come on again.
