Can’t disable hibernation with Windows XP SP3 platform

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -


I would like to ask if you can help me resolve issue with my desktop problem. I just recently formatted my computer. Everything works fine only but the computer and monitor. Keeps on turning off if I am not doing anything and will stay off. I can’t bring it out from hibernate mode. Can you help me fix the problem? Can you tell me how to resolve this? Can you provide me also alternative resolution on how to keep this from happening again? Thank you very much and have a nice day!

How are you doing? Hope you are fine.

Hibernation mode should normally be disabled on desktops by default, going by what you say as it’s a desktop. Navigate to Start > Control Panel > Power Options and then make sure you have the settings as per below screen shot. One done please reboot the PC and check should be fine.

Can’t disable hibernation with Windows XP SP3 platform


Your operating system Windows XP is capable of hibernating. When your computer enters the hibernation state, it saves whatever information is stored in the memory on to your hard drive. When it comes out of hibernation, the machine goes back to its previous state. Supposedly, your computer will come out of hibernation when you press any key. But if it fails to wake up, the system must have frozen.

If this continues to happen every time your computer goes on standby, you should disable the hibernation option. Since you can no longer wake up the machine, unplug it from the power outlet then plug it back. Start your computer again. To disable hibernation, click Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options. Select Hibernate tab. Under Hibernate section, uncheck “Enable hibernation” then click OK.

After this, see if your computer still goes on hibernation even if the option has been disabled. In case it still does go to hibernation, something is wrong with your operating system. Try downloading Microsoft Fix it Center Portable Use it to fix your operating system.
