WINDOWS Hibernate + standby problem

  novis 16:20 25 Mar 2006

My computer will neither hibernate nor go on standby - it just hangs with a notice that it is preparing to standby and then never does. I have to unplug it to shut it down.

How can I restore this function?

I have a Sony Vaio 512mb/80gb and run Windows XP Pro.

I am not technically minded so simple language
would facilitate comprehension.

Have you checked the configuration from Start>Control Panel>Power Options?

There is an error message in Power Options informing me that the UPS service is currently stopped. I don't know what this means or if it is relevant. Everything else seems normal - but I wouldnt know. When the Windows software was first installed everything worked ok.

Do you have a powered hub? Sometimes but not every time my pc will hang at this point,but switching off the hub allows it to continue and hibernate.

After you click on the Start/Turn off computer, if you press shift this changes the standby button to hibernate on a system without the "Hibernate" button, wondered if it might help with your problem.
