Sleep instead of hibernate in Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    in my power management settings i've got set that if I close my laptop's lid, the computer is going to hibernate. But if I do close the lid, the computer is going to sleep. Whereas if I choose Hibernate from Start menu, it really hibernates. Where is the problem? I am running Vista Business 32-bit without SP on my Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi1536. Thanks for any clue.

  • Hello Petrolej,

     

    Thank you for posting!

     

    Based on my experience, this kind of issues is possibly caused by incorrect power management of chipset. I’d love to suggest you with the following steps:

     

    1.    Upgrade the BIOS to the latest version from the following page:

    http://support.fujitsu-siemens.com/download/ShowDescription.asp?SoftwareGUID=F6C884CB-68CA-432E-ACB2-EE9A6627940B&OSID=DD13C337-8EFF-4CFB-A589-72971D7BCBCE&Status=True&Component=Flash Bios for AMILO Pi 1536 / Pi 1537

    Note: Please refer to the instruction of flashing BIOS provided by the manufacturer, backup important data if necessary.


    If the link above is invalid, please use the following link and manually find the BIOS update for the product instead: http://support.fujitsu-siemens.com/com/support/downloads.html.

    2.    Update the driver for motherboard, using the link above.

    3.    Reboot your system and enter BIOS, check the power management in BIOS:

    3.1 If ACPI is enabled

    3.2 If some configuration restrict the lid closing behavior.

    3.3 If some configuration force to enter sleep (S3) when hibernate (S4) is required.

    Please let me know the result if possible. Thank you for the cooperation!

  • It helped. Thank you very much. I can even control the brightness of my display in dependence on the power source (batery or power cord). Cool. First time TechNet helped me.
