Hibernation problems - my computer turns off but it restarts immediately.

I am running Windows Vista Home basic with Service Pack 2.

Recently, I used a disc clean up program which seems to affect hibernation. My computer turns off but it restarts immediately. I went to the command prompt as administrator and checked what is available - S3 - and that you typed in "powercfg / hibernate on ' but it will not always 'down'." I cut and restarted, but still no improvement. Has anyone else had a similar problem? If so, how to solve it?

Microsoft recommended a different command:

I used the disk cleanup tool in Windows Vista, and now the hybrid sleep feature and the hibernation feature are unavailable

Click Start > programs > Accessories > right click on command prompt > run as Admin >powercfg-h on

Alternatively, try the Fix - It.

  • 2-3 days after the expiry of my warranty of one year, my computer turns off suddenly during use. I rebooted, but it stopped again.

    2-3 days after the expiry of my warranty of one year, my computer turns off suddenly during use.  I rebooted, but it stopped again.

    The model is that the computer runs for 15-30 minutes, then suddenly stops, the system reboots, runs for 2-3 minutes, stops, restarts, spans less than a minute, stops, restarts, stop after a few seconds, etc., and at that time there I give until the next day when I repeat the same cycle all over.    I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit and it is a model of Dell Inspiron 518.  There is no error message but a beep at startup upward.  I ran Windows repair program 'Start' who did a restore without success.  The problem occurs even in Safe Mode.

    Does anyone have a guess as to what is the diagnosis?  Thank you.

    Hello

    Could be hardware or even heat and ventilation the related. Try using a small fan to increase ventilation. When a PC
    Remove ALL power and reinstall the memory, all cards and cables (do just not shake - remove and replace-)
    cables on both ends where possible).

    As it does in Mode safe so you probably need technical support in a real store of the computer - no Peeks/leeks at BestBuy or other large shopping areas. Very difficult to solve if it does not remain under tension.

  • My wireless connection turns off when I restart my computer.

    My Internet AT & T Uverse vendor sent me an adapter for my HP Compaq Presario windows XP computer's free wireless. However, once I installed it, it turned off everytime I restarted my computer. AT & T Uverse Tech Support says that it wasn't a problem with the software, but they can not help me with the settings on my computer. I tried everything I know to do the work of Wi - Fi, but no avail. Can someone help me? I'm at my wits end. Thank you!

    Hey Steve,

    What type of wireless network card did give you?
    It is a usb adapter and if so, what brand is it?
    You use the Windows XP Wireless Manager or software that has been installed with the adapter?
    It sounds like a problem with your wireless Manager did not remember network you connected to.
    I suggest to uninstall all software provided with your card and using only the Windows wireless:
    I hope this helps.
  • Why my internet accounts automatically get disconnected after that my computer turns off by itself?

    I have a Compaq PC with processor Dual-Core AMD Athlon X 2 5000, and it runs Windows Vista Edition Home Premium... In my view, that is running Service Pack 2. I use the computer to check my e-mail, my YouTube and Facebook accounts (and possibly other accounts spread I connect to).

    I usually use Internet Explore to browse the web. Sometimes my computer turns off by itself due to overheating. But whenever when this happens, when I turn my computer back on and return to the use of the Internet, I've totally frustrated to find that all my accounts were automatically disconnected!

    Even when I check these boxes to keep me connected to these accounts when I turn on the computer again after a successful stop, my accounts still get disconnected!

    It only seems to happen when my computer turns off by itself without stopping... mainly due to overheating. When I turn on the computer again after a successful regular stop, my accounts are automatically saved on once again, due to activate me "Keep me connected" by checking these little boxes. But after a situation when the computer is off all the time (either by himself for a reason, either by me with strength to turn it off when my computer crashes), my accounts do not remain.

    How can I prevent my accounts automatically be disconnected so that whenever I start the computer, after it turns off by itself, my internet accounts turned on? There must be a patch for this embarrassing situation here on the internet.

    Perhaps because an improper shutdown / forced can inpact on different parameters.

    Your must not PC in all cases be having heat problems, you need to fix this (heat) before it turns into something terminal

  • Computer turns off automatically

    Hello

    my Windows Vista laptop turns off automatically. This isn't a standby automatic regular, Hibernate or shutdown. The computer will just empty. When you try to turn it back on, the message that "the computer was not properly extinguished" sometimes appears.

    This auto disable happens irregularly. Sometimes it seems to happen more often when the computer made the task more or heavier. But the computer seems to be overheating.

    Someone has an idea what could be the problem and I can try to do about it?

    GRT, M

    Suggestions only. I may be far away...

    1. If this problem started not more than 10-15 days ago, and if you remember a time when you did not have this problem, please do a system restore. Choose a 'good' day as your restore point.

    Start button > Search box, type system restore > press the Enter key > uac prompt > click on choose a different restore point > next > select dates as your restore point, until the click > next > finish
    To sit and wait. The machine restarts when it's done.

    Note: In most cases, do it in safe mode system restore is more preferable.
    Here's how to get safe mode:

    Shut down your computer > turn it back on and immediately and repeatedly tab key F8 until you see a black and white screen. The top/down arrow and select Safe Mode.
    2. If it is not an option, going to Safe Mode > selectlast known good Configuration and run it.

    MY MacBook Pro is frozen and I had to turn off get out of the frozen page and when I pressed the button to turn it on it makes the departure noise and then the progress bar lights. When it becomes a little to Midway, the screen goes black and the computer turns off.

    The progress bar that starts from the left end appears when your startup disk is too damaged to mount. The illustrious progress is the functioning of the equivalent of disk utility (ERD). He is never more than half before taking a decision.

    If your drive CAN be mounted, start-up continues normally.

    If your drive cannot be mounted, your Mac stops, because there is nothing productive that it can do.

    If your Mac is trying to start and crashes, which can produce always different results, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

    I recommend that you start in recovery and run utility disk (ERD) until it comes clean or is hopelessly.

When I turn on my computer, I get the splash screen indicating that Windows has finished unexpectedly and I would like to start in safe mode or normally (pluss a couple more choice...).

    Appears not to occur if there is activity going on--as if do me some work or have itunes playing music or I'm just surfing the internet. Curiously, it seems not to happen if I close Internet Explorer and Outlook.

    Hi B Odd Andersen,

    I want to clarify if your computer seems to be sleeping or it completely closed after being idle for a while.

    Method 1: If the computer is in power saving mode, check if you can wake the computer from this State by moving the mouse or pressing any key on the keyboard.

    Method 2: Change the power to another and check to see if the problem persists
    Change, create, or delete a power plan (scheme)

    Method 3: check the logs in event viewer for more information on auto-off down

    Open event viewer

    What are the information in event logs? (Event Viewer)
