Windows 7: Hibernate Simply locks computer and shuts off Monitor

02 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7 Premium Home 64 bit

so curiously this: PC doesn't hibernate; locks instead

sorry to all of you who had to see this go up to the top of Performance & Maintenance every time I posted I promise this is the last time.
