What to do if the laptop is in hibernate mode?

I bought a new laptop and immediately test it for me to see if the laptop works properly, While checking the laptop it turns off. When I touch the mouse pad located in the laptop it suddenly open and it said that its in a "hibernate" mode and I heard a continuous sound that really freak me out. After that I quickly turn off my laptop and open it again but it still in a hibernate mode and I hear the annoying sound again. I really don't know what to do. Can anyone help me to this problem? What is hibernate mode in laptop? What am I going to do in this problem? How will I fix this?

Now a days, most of the laptops have the hibernate feature. This feature helps the system to avoid crash or loss of data. There is every possibility for a system to run out of battery, there may be a chance where you can’t find any resource (current for recharging) and there might an instant shut down of the system which may lead to data lose or system crash, to avoid these type of situations the laptops are coming with a new feature called hibernate.
 
While working on the system, if the system runs out of battery then all the work that is currently going on the system is stored with their current state. So that if you restart it again, then it will restore all the process and programs that were running at that moment.
 
Your system may be running out of battery. So, before starting your system please make sure it is fully charged. Once you have fully charged the battery, you will be able to restore your desktop and continue with your work that was left behind.
 
You stated that, you just brought a new laptop and started checking. This might be the case where your system goes to hibernate. Please charge the battery fully before using the laptop for the first time.
 
This might solve your problem. If the problem persists, please come back again.

Hello!
 
Hibernate mode is a feature that helps manage and conserve power used in laptops or computers which is done by powering off the laptop but is saving its current system state in the hard drive so that when it is turned back on the saved system state will be restored.
 
Try shutting down completely your laptop. To shut down a laptop on hibernate mode, just hold down for several seconds the power button of the laptop until it shuts down. If this doesn't work, unplug your laptop from the electric source and pull out the battery (just put it back after doing so).
 
Turn on your laptop again, this time it will not be on hibernate mode. You can opt to change the settings to avoid the hibernation problem from occurring again, try to disable hibernation feature on your laptop. You can do this by clicking on "Start" button, Select "Settings", click on "Control Panel", click on "Performance and Maintenance", click on "Power Options", go to "Hibernate" tab and uncheck "Enable hibernation" then click "OK".

When you press a key on your keyboard and your computer is in Hibernate mode, it will trigger a “wake up” signal restoring your machine to operational state. In Microsoft Windows XP, there are two sleep options available: Hibernate and Stand By. Stand By is the more traditional sleep mode. This type of sleep mode lowers down the power your computer uses to almost nothing.

When you’re in Stand By mode, the power to your peripheral devices, hard drive, and screen gets cut off but the power to your computer’s physical memory or the physical RAM remains allowing your files to stay open. In Hibernate, the computer saves an image of your desktop which includes all open files and windows and then it shuts down your computer.

When you turn your computer back on, all the files and windows are open just as you left them. In Hibernate mode, it is safe to unplug the power of your CPU but in Stand By mode, you will lose data if you unplug the machine. When your computer is in Hibernate mode, you don’t need to freak out when the system is coming back online.

The noise you hear is just the processing of the system. In a desktop computer, Hibernate is not enabled by default. But when you’re using a laptop, Hibernate is enabled by default because it is mobile and it often runs on battery.
