Disk protection and hibernate problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am using Disk Protection on computers that are setup to go to Hibernate.

    But from time to time when i restart computers i get an error something like:

    The last attempt to restart the system from its previous location failed.
    Attempt to restart again?

    options to choose:

    Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu.
    Continue with system restart.

    This error message is because of hibernate, so is there any interfering between steady state disk protection and hibernation?

    Does windows steady state support hibernate?

     

    Thank you

  • Yes, Windows SteadyState supports hibernate. You can also temporarily disable WDP and restrictions in SteadyState and see the result.

  • To me it seems that WDP in Windows steady state doesnt work well with hibernate mode.
    Because I am getting this error only on computers which go to hibernate.

    Also i have set the computer to hibernate prior to install of Windows Disk Protection, and as i do the WDP installation steady state automatically removes the Hibernate mode, and configures the computers to go in standby instead.

    So i had to go to Power option and set the hibernate again. But after that I am from time to time getting the error message as stated above.
