Windows 7: Computer won't hibernate

Computer won't hibernate

Have new PC and it used to hibernate after a period of time. The fans will shut down, monitors shut down etc. When I wake it then fans start back up, I have to relog in to Windows etc. Suddenly it no longer does this. I do not recall changing any setting and have gone to screen saver and set power saving settings etc. This is my first Windows 7 machine so not sure if i need to do something elsewhere. Thanks for your help.

Hello Joe,

Since this just recently happened, you may be able to do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated when hibernate did work properly.

Hope this helps,

Could have been an update got in the way, just kind of a guess. Have a look here and see if this helps:

Hibernate - Enable or Disable

It may work, may not. Worth a shot though
