Good day all my little problem is that when i try to put my laptop on hibernation by pressing the shift key it comes back saying i can't go into hibernation as it is used by another application. but nothing else as iknow is runing,

windowsxp home is what i am using

CTRL+ALT+DEL and in the applications window it shows what is running, if there is nothing there then click the Processes tab and see if something stands out or seems wrong it may be possible you have picked up a trojan/virus and it is not letting you hibernate

Have you tried Control Panel/Power Options/Hibernate-Enable Hibernation. Just a thought.
