Windows 7: Hibernation not working

16 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Hibernation not working

Every time I manually start hibernation it will begin the process; the monitor will go blank, the harddrive starts making the image and after about 30 seconds the the monitor comes on and the computer is in normal operation. I have tried enabling it with the command line (powercfg -h on) as the administrator with no success.

This just started yesterday. I have not installed any new applications or any new updates.

Does anyone have any ideas?
