Windows 7: More hibernate issues....

More hibernate issues....

When my machine hibernates, it fails to switch off the psu, or crashes before it gets to that part, it does however, save the hibernate file.....

if i manually press the power button and hold it in 4 seconds, the machine turns off.

when i turn it back on, i get no gfx card output, the machine just sits frozen, then it turns itself back off, then after a 2 second pause, it powers back up with a beep and boots, restores from the hibernate file, and tells me windows encountered a problem shutting down.

if i choose shut-down or restart windows they behave fine.

i really hope they can fix this as it really seems to run better and more visually stunning than xp, but i think i may need to go back as with this being a htpc my electricity bill is growing.....


p35 mb and q6600, ati3450, no driver issues in manager, but some usb power issues from the energy report.

Is there a good reason you need to go into hibernation? If not disable it and see if you have any further problems. Having never used hibernation I am only guessing.

But the machine's use is a HTPC, its used to record tv shows and movies, so switching it off is not an answer, and the stopgap, leaving it on, is costing a fortune in electricity!
