Windows 7: More hibernate issues....

11 Aug 2009   #1

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.

Yup, and bios, and for everything else i the box, i fact i had to install very little as most of my HW is covered by 7's own drivers and autoupdate

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!
