    hibernation possible when triggering inverter

    Guys,
    If windows is setup to hibernate upon pressing the power switch, will it still work if you cut power to the inverter?? This is considering that the BIOS is setup to boot up after power loss. Is this type of shut down considered a hard or soft shut down?? Thanks Fern

    Hibernate is a hard shutdown you can kill all power to the computer and it will still resume from hibernate afterwards.

    I cant get my desktop to do that. I have it setup to hibernate when you press power, and I have the BOIS set to boot up on power loss. If I pull the power cord will in windows, then plug it back in, it will not go back into hibernate?? Any Ideas??

    When Windows goes into Hibernate mode, it copies the entire contents of RAM onto the HD.
    If you just pull the plug, it doesn't have time to do that, so it has nothing stored that it can return to. You need a delay before killing power so it has time to shut down properly.

    An ATX power supply doesn't use a simple on/off power switch. It's a soft button, more of a suggestion to shut off, rather than forcing it.
    Pressing power doesn't actually shut off power to the computer, it sends the signal to Windows to start the power-down sequence. If you don't give it time to finish, you can't restart from hibernate mode.
