Windows 7: system goes back to logon screen when i hibernate

system goes back to logon screen when i hibernate


I'm using a Dell Inspiron 5110 with windows 7 Home Premium. Whenever i choose to hibernate this system, all that happens is the screen dims to black for a moment, and then the log in screen comes up.

I've restarted the computer and the problem continues. I don't have any hardware plugged in to the computer, and there are no programs running in the background. In the Windows Task Manager, I recognize all the Processes that are running and see nothing unusual.

Please i need help

Thank in advance.

Sleep and hibernate rely on the video drivers. Are those video drivers up to date?

Does selecting sleep do the same thing as selecting hibernate?

Please try the steps in this tutorial:
Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

If it still goes back to the log on screen with a clean booth, then reset the settings for the power plan that you are using:

I was having this problem too and I have done everything which people said above to update drivers / restore power plans etc. but nothing works.

This is how I fixed it !!!!

Right click on My computer, click on MANAGE.
Now goto "Disk Management", "Right Click" on your current windows installation drive (Generally its C) and mark as "MARK PARTITION AS ACTIVE" and you are DONE!

Reboot your machine and check if it works ;-)
