Cant hibernate Thinkpad X220 with encrypted HDD : can sleep/shutdown
Posted on 2015-02-20
Previously I could Hibernate this X220 laptop (& remove its battery): my habit of conserving the battery energy
& to be able to resume back where I last work (my MS Office files that I edit half way), the pages in the browser
that I last browsed etc.
Ever since I let our corporate IT encrypts the HDD (with Mc Afee), when I tried to hibernate, it gave a message
(cant recall now but I can check later). It's a policy to encrypt using our corporate IT's McAfee so I can't
insist on encrypting using say Truecrypt or other methods.
I don't want to always shut down my laptop as I'll lose track of where I last did my works in the MS Office,
Outlook etc & to sleep, it will drain my battery that over the night, 50% out of 100% is gone (yes, my battery
is rather old).
Is there still a way to Hibernate it? If there's really no choice, I guess I'll have to let it 'Sleep' (so I must not
remove its battery as in Sleep mode, it still consumes energy)
