Windows 7: Windows 7 won't hibernate

Windows 7 won't hibernate

I see hibernate. I have chosen hiberate by lid and power button. It will hibernate once then come back on will not hibernate again. In fact it goes off into some weird power state each time, of sleep, then a few minutes later waking, or never sleeping and waking right away. It disables my keyboard light until I restart.

I have been trying to solve this day and night for a week.

I surely need ideas that I have not tried.

Disks are marked active
adapter is set to not wake up

Any ideas?

I cannot get Hibernate to 'stick' on my Sony Windows 7

I have read hundreds of posts all over the net over the past month and tried nearly every single option suggested. I cannot get Hibernate to 'stick' on my Sony Windows 7.

I can use hibernate on my Windows 7 Toshiba just Fine.

Even when I match the settings exactly between the Sony and the Toshiba, the Sony will only sleep.
I NEED hibernate. The sleep function is temporary. I want to keep open the 25 windows or so and Move or Drive my computer to a new location and open up my laptop where I was.

Still open to all ideas.
