Standby hibernation instead of switch mode

I put our machine Windows XP for going mode sleep after 30 minutes. However, it seems to be in hibernation instead. The system will stop, and we need to press the power button to turn it on again. I checked the Hibernate tab, and Hibernate is not selected.


Hi JasonThornton,

  1. Did you the latest changes on the computer?
  2. You receive an error message?
  3. You have security software installed on the computer?

Method 1

It is possible that some third-party programs installed on the computer is causing the problem.

I suggest that you put the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

See section to learn more about how to clean boot.

How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" State

Reset the computer to start as usual

When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

(a) click Start, type msconfig in the search box and press ENTER.

(b) If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password or click on continue.

(c) under the general tab, click the Normal startup option, and then click OK.

(d) when you are prompted to restart the computer, click on restart.

Method 2

If the previous step fails, then I suggest that you update the drivers to display on the computer card by visiting the card manufacturer or computer manufacturer website and check if it helps.

Method 3

If the steps above do not then refer to the article below and check if it helps.

    Hallo! Help me)

    I'm on macbook pro 13 "2011 i5. So I bought ssd to upgrade my mac. These are the 128 GB plextor m6pro. I cloned all the disk system ssd. Also I bought optibay, I broke my hard drive cable, so now the whole system works on optibay and ssd (without hard drive).

I like this for 4 times, other times just system opens when I opened my macbook. Then I go to the internet-> disk utility boot and see this ssd is completely erased, no partition! I don't really know what to do.

    It seems that he connects with optibay because it uses cd, mode standby/hibernation and sessions.

  • Satellite M30X-111 wake up from standby/hibernation mode

    People, like many of you, I had the questionable connection DC problem and I solved this at the time of re - solder the wandering joint on the connector for the motherboard.

    Everything was fine with the laptop until yesterday when I tried to get the machine to wake from standby / hibernation if it is when you close the screen) and now all that happens is that the blue light around the power button lights up, the CPU fan runs for about 5 seconds, the HARD drive light flashes once Maybe two times and the DVD briefly climb towers.

    Also nothing happens... the screen is blank and the laptop is actually not from the occasional maelstrom of the fan.

    Is it in any case to perform a reset of some sort to get it to snap it on hibernation? I have read up on this subject on various forums and have tried to start without memory, without the HARD drive and the DVD drive and still no life.

    Any input is appreciated that I need this laptop to spring into life again.

    Thanks in advance



    to wake up the machine, simply remove the battery and the AC and leave the machine for a few hours. After that, it should work again.
    By the way: sometimes it s a good idea to do a biosupdate, because maybe the problem comes from the bios.

    Please give some comments about your success... :)

    No matter what method I use to try to switch to Stanby or hibernation mode, a prompt indicating "standby/hibernation is not allowed now" appears.

  • Keyboard gives erroneous characters of standby / hibernation

    Dear all,

    I have an Acer Aspire V5-471. It is fully updated with Windows8.1 and all the MS later updates.

    The problem is that sometimes when the computer from sleep / hibernate mode, the keys to generate incorrect characters. It is a major problem when trying to enter my password to logon.

    I thought it might be a hardware or driver problem and checked the keys and uninstalled/reinstalled drivers, all to nothing does not.

    I then connected with another account and worked well, I created for the first account and who then worked fine until I put the computer to sleep (lid closed). When it happened again, I just changed my user, switched back and it's OK even once in the first count.

    So it seems to enter the mode standby/hibernation somehow corrupts a keyboard user account assignment.

    Has anyone else had this problem? I searched the site and cannot find all similar occurrences.

    Thank you


    No he never had this problem until recently.

    I found this article from a search:

    Seems to be a problem in microsoft with keyboards.

    If I try to open a session that get incorrect password.

    I click on the back of the switch user screen then click on my login information and can connect OK, it seems when the computer from standby the brining, the KB is considered to be bad for the hotmail account, go to user switching screen seems correct.

    I'll try the proposed to the last SYSTEM RESTORE and see if that fix it.

  • Running back from standby/hibernation program

    Hey there,
    I want to launch a program every time I come back/sign my computer after the standby/hibernation mode. I only found a possibility to play sounds of a logon each time that this happens, but I can't run programs like that. Is it possible to do it on Vista?

    PS: If it isn't, can you send this request apparently simple functionality to the Windows 7 development team?

    While the mark's instructions look as if they will work, there is a more elegant way to achieve, using Vista built in Task Scheduler.

    To create a task that runs whenever you unlock your profile:
    1 open the Task Scheduler [start > Panel > system and Maintenance > administrative tools > Task Scheduler (or just type "Task Scheduler" in the box start search)]. You will need an administrator account/password for access to this.
    2. Select "Create a task" to create a new task.
    3. a panel with several tabs will open.
    4. fill the 'Général' tab to meet your needs.
    5. go to the "Triggers" tab and choose "new". Another panel will open. At the top of this Panel, you will see a (see below). Open it and choose ' to unlock the workstation. Then choose if you want this task to run just for your profile or for everyone. Click on 'ok '. (You can find it useful to use the option "Delay task" to delay the task for 15-30 seconds to give your office a chance to load before the program runs.)
    6. go to the Actions tab, select 'New', choose 'Run program' and locate the program you want to run.
    7. Select the tabs 'Conditions' & 'Settings', respectively and change various settings according to your needs. (Make sure that the "Run on AC Only" option is disabled if you are using a laptop and want the task to run when it is unplugged).
    8. click OK to save your new task.
    Now, whenever you unlock your profile after the standby or Hibernate mode, your program runs.
    If you follow these instructions, but choose "connection to" rather than "To unlock the workstation", your task will run whenever you connect (unlock and logon are not the same thing as the computer is concerned, so keep that in mind).
    This may not work if your profile is not protected by a password, but all mine, so I couldn't test it in this situation.
    I hope this will satisfy your needs.
    Best wishes
  • Yoga 2 Pro: randomly switches modes even when closed and the peripheral use

    I recently bought a Yoga 2 Pro, and I love it, except for an extremely annoying issue.

    It toggles randomly modes on me without moving the screen. I have not been able to develop a model for switching, it seems to be completely random. This morning I use this connected to a monitor of periperal via HDMI with the lid closed, and it was fine for about an hour and then started switching of the modes - tablet, back to laptop, the marquee, stand up, back to laptop, for tent...

    One of the benefits of its use with peripheral keyboard are the other modes don't disable the keyboard, but it is to randomly change the orientation of the screen. When I used it on its own without the devices, I can be typing away in the configuration of the laptop and all of a sudden it switches modes and the laptop is disabled.

    Sometimes, it is very well for hours and then will be randomly 10 times in 30 seconds.

    I know that I can turn on the rotation lock, but I just that it works correctly. He has been behaving in this way since the first night I bought it.

    All my windows updates are current and I reinstalled the drivers of transition of Yoga.

    Help, please. I need my computer for United work and cannot have a malfunction all the time and also cannot afford to lose if, during a period of time to have it fixed.

    I think it's finally fixed, but he forced me to return the unit for repair.

    Repair Center took two will solve the problem, but the ultimate fix seems to have required the replacement of the LCD: I guess there is some kind of sensor attached to the LCD unit. They replaced the motherboard and reconfigured the unit before replacing the LCD screen, so I can't be certain that he was not also a problem with the motherboard.

    So I guess I would recommend all those who encounter this issue gets their unit in a Service Center for repair before the warranty runs out. The warranty repair process wasn't as smooth as I would have liked, but ultimately it looks like my machine works fine now, and I don't think that any amount of waiting for updates of pilot would have set it.

  • Switching mode of EPC 3925 / router E3000 speed 20% loss

    Yes. It is better to have just a modem ordinary to avoid double NAT issues as well as port easier opening if it is necessary to do so.

  • E2000 in Switch Mode

    My home network is configured with a box from Netgear 8 port that the server DHCP and an E2000 to wireless access (and some wired so ports) to set the mode.

    Since the E2000 is no longer a DHCP server, it loses its IP address and appears to be assigned as  When I try to access the E2000 this new address using the browser based utility, the expected login screen appears, but it doesn't seem to be a password that works.  According to the instructions of the key WAP is supposed to be the password and it worked before when the E2000 has been implemented as a router.

    I think that I do not understand something here.  Comments?  If I need/want to change the settings am I forced to reset the E2000 and start every time if I use switch mode?

    Nevermind... According to the best information I can find, a switch is not displayed as a separate device in a table of DHCP addresses

  • UCS in switch mode


    It is supported to connect 3 third-party servers to the fabric of interconnections in a UCS in the switching mode?

    Is the switch in UCS mode fully supported (even if not preferred)?

    Thank you

    Even if its switching mode "called" she should not be considered a switch.  It is an interconnection fabric and intended to connect only the servers Cisco and storage 3rd party devices.   You must understand if we said that it is 'ok' to fix any ethernet device it would open valves to a lot of problems of support for the system.

    I hope that if you can afford a UCS you can allow you an additional switch to connect your 3rd - party servers or just replace with UCS servers all together ;-)


  • Fabric of interconnection in the care of the CF NPIV Switch mode? If anyone can confirm?


    I'm working on a scenario where a client will make Direct Attach Storage for a pair of UCS fabric of interconnections. It will also need to connect a device of backup based on the CF to the FI. So let's run the s FI mode Switch CF.

    There apparently is a virtual machine on the blades which must have virtual HBA running in order to access their specific LUN.

    The question is whether the fabric interconnect (version 2.1(3b)) will support NPIV when running in the FC switch mode. Or the GUI or CLI Configuration guide mentions this, and I have not any FI to connect to check.

    Can anyone confirm this, either by pointing to a URL where it can be clarified or by connecting a FI Switch FC mode and by:

    connect nxos

    have SH

    or see the race |  feature Inc.

    and check if the npiv feature is enabled or not?

    Thanks a lot for your help


    NPIV is by default active! See screenshot below
