    Hibernation help

    Does the hard drive determine if a system can hibernate? My old program hard drive crapped out on me after I did something really stupid so I put in a new drive. Now the system doesn't give me the option of enabling hibernation. Any help here would be much appreciated.

    Make sure it is enabled in the power tab under control panel, also, sometimes windows XP does not like to show it at the Bubble power screen. Try hitting the H key at that point. If the pc goes into hybernation, then you have it enabled, and you can put a shortcut somewhere by going command.exe - (whatever the hybernate command is)(sorry, is at work and I don't want to test by makeing my pc go into hybernation mode, specialy becaue it is also a server)

    I don't believe that matters. Maybe if you are using a really old drive? Are you using winxp? If so, you have to turn on Hybernation from within the properties of your power settings. Right click on your desktop, go to screen saver, power settings and then Hybernate. If that doesn't do it for you, I'll poke around some more.

    1st it's XP Pro, second the hard drive is a western digital and it's newer than the hard drive I just had in. This one is not even a yr old.

    I have tried going in to enable hibernation as mentioned already. It doesn't even give me the tab that allows it. Microsoft's website states if it doesn't give you this tab that the hardware doens't support it, but that has to be bunk. All else stayed the same the only thing that changed was the harddrive. This is ****in me off big time.

    Check your bios...You might had it disable in there. Microsoft can't see what the bios hide.

    I can check but I didn't change the bios settings to begin with.

    Could it possibly be a driver?

    I don't know for sure. Check in your BIOS and make sure that you have enabled STD (suspend to disk) rather than or in addition to STR (suspend to RAM)

    It could be a driver....I had the same problem and the only way I was able to enable hibernation was to get rid of a virtual drive program. From my experience, I've had two programs (D-tools and Alcohol 120%) which would not let me hibernate. With Alcohol 120%, I uninstalled the program, enabled hibernation then re-installed and it worked fine. But with D-tools, no matter what I did, I couldn't get hibernation working with it installed.
