hibernate and standby has been disabled

  User-FD7097C9-9CFB-45EC-8E569E3268FE1CDE 11:12 18 Feb 2003

On shutdown, there is no option to hibernate or standby on my windows ME.Both options were there until recently. They have disappeared from the settings/power options so can not be ticked.On typing hohiber.txt in "run", i see a message saying that"hibernate has been disabled because the computer failed to resume 2 or more times".Anyone know what this means and how i can restore hibernate and standby options? I do not want to try system restore as my last restore point was many months ago. Quite new to all of this so would appreciate any reply in plain-speak if possible. Thanks, Eddie.

System Restore and Hibernate have never worked satisfactorily for me in Windows ME. I would not recommend relying on them. Keep proper backups of your documents, and other important data such email. Other forum visitors will probably recommend programs like Norton Ghost that does a similar job to system restore.

Never mind hibernate, just switch off and take a nap (-_-)zzz
