Windows 7: My laptop won't hibernate

My laptop won't hibernate

whenever i try to hibernate my system, it simply pretends to shut down for a few seconds and then it takes me back to the login screen. i tried checking for any device that could be keeping my system awake using the command "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed". It turned out there was none. i unplugged my all external device connected to my laptop and still yet, it would not hibernate.

Finally, i tried the command "powercfg -lastwake" i got the following result, but i don't understand what it means:
Wake History Count - 1
Wake History [0]
Wake Source count - 1
Wake Source [0]
Type: Fixed Feature
Power Button

Please somebody help me...Thanx in advance.

I've tried some of the solutions in the link you provided but i'm still experiencing the issue. Finally i got a tip from Microsoft's site to run a Power Efficiency Diagnostics. After running the diagnostics, an html file containing the report was generated. I've attached it to this post.

Thanks in advance

That is a neat report, but I'm not sure what to make of it.

What happens if you try and put the laptop to sleep?
...not hibernate, but sleep...

when i put the laptop to sleep, it sleeps. But when i try to hibernate it does not hibernate. Although, i noticed something unsual, when i start my system after a shut down and i try to hibernate after working, it does hibernates. when i resume the system again and i'm done working, if i try to hibernate, the system hibernates. In order words, i noticed that i can hibernate my system only three(3) times.

After hibernating up to about three times, the next time i try to hibernate, it just takes me back to my login screen......

i've tried everything...and the whole issue is becoming frustrating already....i'll be glad if you can help.

I just gotta ask - why not just use sleep?

That is all I ever use.

I'll ask some others to come help in your thread. I'm not sure what else to try.

i feel sleep still consumes battery power. Except if you know of how i can put it to sleep without consuming energy...that's why i prefer hibernate because it shuts down saves my session. i don't mind if there's a way of making sleep do that.

Sleep should save your session too. Does it not do that for you?

Sleep does use the battery... but very little.
I can sleep for weeks and never run the battery running down.*
Coming out of sleep is so much faster.

*of course, I get pretty cranky if I sleep that long ;-)

Users should be encouraged to use the modern Sleep to Hibernate features built into Win7, and which are for the first time perfected in an OS. It gives you great convenience to be able to walk away from your work and have it preserved whether you come back in an hour or a week.

Most Sleep and Hibernate problems are with the Display adapter, so try updating it now beginning by running Updates after enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3).

If no newer Display driver via Updates still install all Important and Optional Updates as there may be a performance update that affects this. Always keep these fully updated.

Import any newer Display driver from the PC or Device's Support Downloads webpage.

Other steps to troubleshoot Sleep Mode Problems - Vista Forums which can also affect Hibernate.

In Power Options under Advanced Settings for your Power Plan, set Sleep to 1 minute and Hibernate to 2 minutes to troubleshoot this.

Report back results.
