  • stand by/ hibernating issue

    I have my computer setup to go into stand by when i turn off the car but i can not get it to hibernate after a given time frame. What am I doing wrong?

    what os are you using? if xp, i do not believe that there is a way to do that (though i could be wrong) if win 7, i believe that it needs to be setup as hybrid sleep to allow it...

    if you could list your os, and motherboard model, it might help someone answer your question a little better(some motherboards support different features).

        What you are attempting to use is something called "hybrid sleep" where it sleeps for a certain time period and then wakes back up when that time expires and goes into hibernation. This is only available on Vista (Service pack needed) and windows 7.

          ok, what would be my best option to save my battery since I am using xp? Should I just have it to hibernate on power off? Oh, I am using a m2 power supply. I am using jumper 1 setting. If I set it to stand by, will the m2 shut off power completely after a given time to save my battery?
