This probably has nothing to do with your issues but have a look at the tutorial below.


But it's an idea I have and I can't remember if this has been addressed already.

Hibernate - Enable or Disable

Well, I don't know why it would only hibernate once every two weeks or so, but I checked it anyway. It was already set to never, but I did go ahead and disable the hybrid sleep also. I dunno.

I was hoping some guru here would have something to say. Bummer.

BTW, that above link has a flaw. They say to use the command powercfg -h off and then go into the advanced settings and turn hibernate to never... well, the above command removes the hibernate option from the advanced power options completely. Sooooo you CAN'T turn it to never because it isn't there!

It's disabled, which means it will never hibernate.

I understand... but view their instructions at the above link. They tell you to use that command, and then to go into the GUI side and set hibernate to 'never'... it's impossible!

Anyway, I digress...

So.... any other neato ideas? Or am I stuck shutting this thing down every night?
