At the command prompt run as administrator, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off
Start menu > type Power options
In the left pane, open the link labeled Change when the computer sleeps and then open the link Change advanced power settings.
Under the Advanced Sleep options, expand the Sleep tree and turn off Hybrid Sleep.
Press OK.

Thnak you for the reply ....

Let's try powercfg.exe /hibernate off
Hybrid sleep is already turned off ....

In the same time, do you think that i'm missing some services like "terminal services" or "user sessions" ?
