    Question Hibernation Tab gone?

    I'm using Windows XP home on a Jetway C7J5, and I just did a full reinstall. In my initial install, my power options had the hibernation tab in the power options. Now it doesn't. I didn't change anything in the BIOS between the reimage, and I don't know where to look to try and reinable the option.

    Any ideas?

    Usually that happens when the driver for your video card isn't installed.. check your device manager to make sure you don't have anything in your "other devices" tab

    Thanks. I have not reinstalled my video driver yet, so that must be the culprit.

    P.S. Your avatar is nasty.

    That was it. Loaded video drivers, and tab showed up. Thanks.

    Future reference.....if you only have standby, turn off, and restart, hit the shift key while it's displayed. Standby becomes Hibernate. Didn't notice that before SP3.
    My opinion is my own.

    for future reference others problems could be acpi bein disabled in the bios and the enable hibernation check is disabled in the control panel power options.

    Bringing this thread back from the dead since it addresses my problem, no hibernation tab.....

    I re-installed XP Pro on my CarPC and noticed that the Hibernation tab was gone. I followed the guidance in this thread by using the CD that came with my Lilliput monitor (Touchkit) but I still don't have the hibernation tab. The touchscreen is working fine (and did before I installed the Touchkit program w/drivers). What am I missing? The first time I loaded XP Pro on this computer a long time ago the hibernation tab was always there.

    Touchkit drivers don't have anything to do with your hibernation. You should look to make sure your display drivers are installed. To do that you just need to look in your device manager. Control panel > system > hardware > device manager. Then you will probably see something in other devices or double check display adapters.

    Yeah, I knew the touchkit drivers were for the touchscreen portion of the monitor, but it was the only CD that came with my monitor so I was "hoping" it also had video drivers. As far as the device manager is concerned, I looked there and did not see any "other devices" or "display devices" (which I remember seeing before in the past). That tells me that I am using the "generic" video driver (so I can see something), but since I did not see anything in the Device Manager, I am not sure where to look now.
