Windows 7: Hibernate

23 Feb 2013   #1

windows 7

I hibernate my computer., When I turn it on and get into Windows, it can not do anything for 30 seconds.
At this time the hard drive light is off., But the pages that were open before hibernate displayed.
There is also a mouse cursor, but it is disabled.
1 month ago I installed Windows again.
What is the problem?

Hi hmahziar,

The large file size of 'Hiber.sys' may cause issues; try deleting the 'Hiber.sys' file and check results.

Please refer to the following 'Microsoft Article' to 'Disable and Re-enable Hibernation' to see if that helps: How to disable and re-enable hibernation on a computer that is running Windows
Alternatively, you may use the following tutorial also: Hibernate - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps.
