HIBERNATE IS CORRUPT.
System  goes into hibernation ok but keyboard and mouse not functional at wakeup.

Other anomalies exist.

How do I restore/rebuild the hibernate function?

Thanks

I'd start with disabling it.  Then deleting the Hiberfil.sys file (hidden, system file on C:\) and then re-enable and test.

If it still fails, SFC /SCANNOW to verify OS integrity and consider upgrading / downgrading drivers as it could be a problem with the driver for the input devices not properly "waking up" when the system is restored.

I disable 'hibernate' and 'sleep' on all my machines and almost all my customer's machines because too many computers do not recover properly.  The machines that work properly of course, I never hear about.

If the above suggestion does not work, can you describe the other anomalies?

Did you recently run a malware scan? If not, please do so, you can do that using the free version of MBAM (http://www.malwarebytes.org/).

I routinely use Hibernate on all my laptops - thought I RARELY use sleep.  And I RARELY see any issues with doing so.  When I do, it's usually driver related.

Thank you all for your input.

The easiest path was the charm....powercfg -h....via elevated command.  

Disable- reboot-re-enable.


Bless the CLI!

Thanks Y'all
