    can't enable hibernation

    hy all,

    i am not able to get my carpc into hibernation.
    my hardware:
    epia mII 10000
    psu: http://cartft.com/catalog/il/574

    in the control panel i can't activate the hibernation.
    if i type "powercfg /hibernation on" in the console i got "Your System doesn't support hibernation".

    but i think the console don't tell me the truth.

    can anybody help me?

    regards
    markus

    You need to make sure S1 power-saving is enabled in the BIOS. Then you're probably going to have to reinstall Windoze and llow the proper drivers/configs/modules/etc. load with Windoze.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Make sure ACPI is enabled on the motherboard. Also, try installing the most current motherboard drivers you can find.

    I would also make sure you are using the latest drivers for video (and any other devices).

    Hard work often pays off over time, laziness always pays off right now.

    thx for your quick answers.

    s1 was always enabled in the bios (there was an option for s3???).
    i installed the newest drivers from the via page (including video and chipset).

    what do you mean with "llow the proper drivers/configs/modules/etc. load with Windoze".

    my system:
    xp pro sp2 with all updates.

    Well, if S1 was enabled int he BIOS from the intial Windoze install, then it's really a moot point.
