    We need more information, bro.

    Did it ever hibernate and now it wont anymore? If so, did you do anything lately, either software or hardware?
    What are the specs on your machine? What hardware are you running?
    What happens when you try to hibernate? Does it freeze or just kick you back to windows?
    What's sleep mode, do you mean standby? So neither hibernate nor standby work? Can you do a full shutdown? Will the computer stay off when you do a shutdown or does it turn itself back on?

    Also, right click the "my computer" icon, go into hardware and look at device settings. Do any of them have a yellow triangle with exclamation point? If so, you need to resolve that problem (usually a driver issue) before hIbernate will become available.

    most likley he just doesnt have hibernate support enabled in the power setup.

    click your start menu, then go to control panel, then power settings, last tab, check "hibernate".

    It should show up as a shutdown option when you hold shift on the XP shutdown box.

    I bought the system yesterday with WindowsXP already installed. So I don't know wether it ever hibernated before.

    It is an Epia m10000, 40g HD, DVD player, 512 MB DDR mem.

    I just can't chose the option hibernate, I can only shut down and restart.

    I'm from the Netherlands and I also have a Dutch Windows version. Here it is called sleep mode maybe it is the same as standby.

    When I shut down the computer stays off until I press the power button again.

    I thank both of you, I'll try it soon.

    I'll let you know here when it works.

    Make sure the proper graphics drivers are installed! Its incorrect graphics drivers that stop the system from hibernating or even showing hibernate in the Power Options.

    strange What do graphic drivers have in common with hibernating a computer?

    The system needs the correct graphics drivers to hibernate the machine, the graphics card can stop the machine from hibernating with standard drivers .... trust me, this will most probably fix it!

    I dont think he is having a problem - he just hasnt enabled hibernation. XP does not nativly support it. either that or he doesnt know that when you hold SHIFT you get the hib option.

    He just bought the system - so its not like he was able to before and now he cant.
