Hibernate will not work in Windows 7
Posted on 2010-09-16
I am having a problem where a batch of laptops will not hibernate in Windows 7.
All of the laptops are HP Compaq 615, with 4GB RAM and Windows 7 Professional installed.
When you select hibernate the screen goes to black but the power is still on and a move of the mouse or a keyboard press brings the laptop to life instantly, as if only the display has turned off.
I have read various forum posts saying that machines with 4GB RAM or more do not work with hibernate, but do not know if this is true and after removing a 2GB stick I still have the same problem.
Can anyone offer a suggestion as to what the problem may be?
Thanks in advance.
