Windows 7 hibernation issue on HP 8440w Elitebook

Hi,

I am using Microsoft Deployment toolkit, and I have successfully deployed my reference image to an HP 8000 Elite Desktop and HP Elitebook 2540p notebook.

However, I have an interesting yet serious problem with the Elitebook 8440W notebook (that does not happen on the 8000 or 2540p).

Operating system is Windows 7x64 Professional.

The registry has default values with caching.

The computer is also a member of the domain.

The computer is put into hibernation. When coming out of hibernation (there is no network connection) the password is not accepted (using the correct password to the account  that is listed, the same user who was logged on when computer hibernated).

The only way for the user to get into the computer is to reboot (cold reboot) and then logon is possible (with same user name and password) even if the computer is disconnected from network.

Any suggestions?

Is this hardware or software related issue?

Thanks,

Mark

First check the Power Settings of your Network Adpater

I disabled the option "allow the computer to turn off power on the adapter" to save battery and now I can logon after hibernation.

Can you explain why it now works? The computer is disconnected from the network and I don't understand why this setting has such a big effect.

Thanks,

Mark

For with HP's or even thinkpad's I've had trouble with their Power Management software. I've had HP Elite books blue screen on me or the network connection would never re-establish because of their power management software. With thinkpad's I've had them never come out of sleep or hibernation because of their power management software.

I would recommend just getting rid of any power management software on your HP's. Of course that all depends if you are using their power management software. Even if you are not i would still recommend getting rid of it.
My issue was with XP and 7.
