My hibernation option has gone
Only sleep is available

Fact: it was there before! I used to use it all the time!!

I've googled and it seems as though you can turn it on if it gets turned off, as mentioned here:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;929658#MoreInformation

I followed the instructions, opened command promt as admin and ran the "powercfg /hibernation on"
No joy :(

I did have problems with the laptop coming back on for when the lid is closed
I set the power options for it to hibernate if the lid was closed
Before it was on sleep
BUT: it still used to come on

The only solution I found was that if I hibernated + waited a few seconds before closing the lid, then this worked OK

ALSO: I had a few nightmares after installing rubbish Acronis OS Selector - wasted about 3 days getting my system back - that's another story - I thought I would mention - not sure if this is relevant

I did the powercfg /a option and got the following:
C:\Windows\system32>powercfg /a
The following sleep states are available on this system: Standby ( S3 ) Hibernat
e Hybrid Sleep
The following sleep states are not available on this system:
Standby (S1)
The system firmware does not support this standby state.
Standby (S2)
The system firmware does not support this standby state.
I'm not 100% sure what the above means

Any help would be great

Thanks

OM

It usually indicates that either the display drivers or the chipset drivers are missing or need to be updated.
