    I have a Sony computer with Windows Me operating system.
    Just tried the hibernation feature as suggested in the latest
    PC World. It worked fine about 5 times. After that the system
    shuts down and immediately comes back on. When it did work,
    liked the capability. How do I get it working again?

    This problem you describe with Sleep/Hibernation modes is why most folks realize too late they should not try to use these features. They either stop working or cause error because they don't work reliably. After awhile they can cause major vague error in your operating system. Avoid the situation and don't use them.

    Use the these settings. Right-click an open space on your desktop; Point to Properties; Click the Screen Saver tab; click the lower settings button; Under the appropriate tabs (General and Hibernate tab, if the Hibernate tab is available) use the drop-down arrows to choose Home office/desk; turn off monitor after 15 minutes; turn off hard disk after 30 minutes; Sleep and Hibernate modes - NEVER.

    Do not use the advanced power management features(i.e. hibernate, suspend, standby, sleep, etc.). They cause more trouble than they are worth, and your computer will run better without them - as you have found out.

    I set the power scheme to "Always On" and all other settings to "Never".
