Windows 7: Power Plan Issue After Hibernate

Power Plan Issue After Hibernate

Hi folks, I'm looking for some help with a minor annoyance. I often find myself working with my laptop, plugged into AC power, finishing my session with a hibernate (my default action after closing the lid) then waking it up on battery power. In this situation, i can tell that once the lappy comes out of hibernate, the power plan still thinks the computer is plugged in (biased on screen brightness, processor load, ect.) I can fix it easily by toggling between power plans in my system tray, but it's still annoying. Anyone have an automatic fix?

Cheers.

Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Check to see that your video drivers are up to date. They control much of the sleep/hibernation process.

Graphics drivers are up to date.

Thanks for the reply, though my graphics drivers are, in fact, up to date.

Cheers.

You might check to see if there is a BIOS update for your laptop.

Updates

Again, I appreciate the response. My bios is up-to-date.

To dissuade any further "maybe you should update this" commentary... Let it be known that I'm savvy in these regards and quite certain that everything (non-critical programs not withstanding) is up-to-date on this particular system.

/not trying to be contrary, just want to cut to the chase.

Maybe - delete all hardware profiles and let them be rebuilt.

That's an interesting idea. Perhaps one i don't have time for currently, but I'll keep it in mind.

Thanks. If/when i get around to it, i'll update.
