When hibernates vista, it locks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Guys,

    I am new to this forum and this would be my first question.
    I am facing a strange problem since last 2-3 days. unsure.gif
    Whenever I try to hibernate my laptop (HP Compaq 6510b, Vista Enterprise, SP1), it locks the computer INSTEAD of hibernating. So now every time, I have to shut it down sad.gif   and that is really a bog issue everytime.
    No software changes made during these days.
    I have also tried disabling and enabling hibernation, still no luck.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi RK, thanks for the post. Before we go further, please first check if you have enough hard drive space under system partition (usually C:). Meanwhile, you can perform a disk check:


    1. Click Start and then Run.

    2. Type in “chkdsk /f” without quotations and press Enter. Type in Y and press Enter.

    3. Restart the computer.


    Then, let's check if you can use hibernation.
