Stop laptop going into hibernate mode.

I have a probook 4530s laptop which we use for displaying security cameras on an external screen using HDMI cable. The issue is that the laptop seems to go into hibernate on its own after a while. I tried to check the settings and set it to never dim the display nor go to sleep whether on battery or power. Also i set to nothing when the power button is pressed.

Please advise how do I stop it from going into hibernate or sleep on its own.

Hi,

Are you running Windows 10?  If so, have you followed the steps outlined here by Microsoft?

(There are command prompt and control panel methods explained)

As you are using a laptop, take note of the battery setting mentioned here

Hi,

I would always do this form a command prompt - it seems to be much more reliable.

The command is the same for Win7, 8, 8.1, and 10 (at least):

powercfg.exe /hibernate off

Open in new window


Run it from an elevated command prompt, then reboot the machine.
