Hibernate mode suddenly stopped working


Hi,

Please can someone help me with the Hibernate function in Windows 7.

Many months ago I spent countless hours trying to troubleshoot the Hibernate/Sleep function on Windows 7 and eventually gave up. I subsequently had to reinstall Windows 7 on a reformatted drive and to my amazement from that day on the Hibernate function has worked

It has continued without major problems until 48 hours ago. Because of the past problems, I have routinely made manual restore points at regular intervals and whenever the Hibernate mode faltered I have been able to wind back to a working state.

One thing which has regularly messed with the Hibernate function has been a program called LP Recorder, for recording vinyl LPs. Having some LPs to record on Saturday evening I created a Restore Point prior to starting. Yesterday, after all the LPs were transferred to CD, I restored to Saturday's Restore Point but this time I have not restored the Hibernate function. Worse still is the fact that all my previous Restore Points have vanished without a trace.

Since I worked on the LPs, I have not made any other changes to the system I am running, no programs have been installed or removed, in fact I have really not done a lot on the computer.

Can someone please suggest a possible solution, or explain the apparent connection between a program that records on the Line In jack and the Hibernate function? In my own mind I am totally convinced there is a connection, the problems that have occurred have almost always followed the use of such a program, but I do not have the knowledge to understand how this can be!


While searching the forum here for solutions, I found this “Thanks for the tips. But I have found out the culprit. The Windows Search 4.0 "Index Now" option was enabled. On disabling it the problems were resolved.” Where do I find 'Windows Search Index Now' please??

Thanks for any suggestions,

best wishes,

Roger

Windows Search 4 is not applicable to Windows 7 - it went out with Vista.

Disable Hibernation and set the computer to do what you want under Power Options.

Many moons ago when we had a Microsoft 'code monkey' on the BBS who explained exactly what hibernation involved and the minor miracle which occurred if/when the computer came out of hibernation

I have always turned the feature off in all OS's in which it was available.

My take on hibernation - others will clearly have different views.

My System
Run this command from an elevated command prompt: powercfg -h off followed by powercfg -h on.

No idea if it will work, what it does is that it will delete the current hiberfil.sys file and subsequently re-create it.

Hi and thanks for your replies.

PeteC, I will try that. You say you have always turned the feature off - do you mean you have just turned off hibernation and relied on Sleep instead, or abandoned both functions?

Arie - thanks for your suggestion, which I will try.

I will write again with news of how I get on,

best regards,

Roger

I have abandoned both functions and only allow the monitor to go into standby.

Problem with Hibernate/Sleep in Windows 7 - RESOLVED


Hi and a big thanks to everyone who has responded.

After a tiresome and frustrating weekend, trying all i know and following the advice offered here, i have finally hit upon the solution to my problem.

In my original post, I mentioned the problem arose after I had recorded vinyl albums to CD. I was firmly convinced that the program (LPRecorder) was in some way to blame for the failure of the Hibernate mode.

Well, after running powercfg -energy in cmd.exe, one of the errors listed was:
<HTML><META HTTP-EQUIV="content-type" CONTENT="text/html;charset=utf-8">
<p class=log-entry-header>System Availability Requests:System Required
Request</DIV>
<p class=log-entry-content>
<p class=log-entry-description>The device or driver has made a request to
prevent the system from automatically entering sleep.</DIV>
<TABLE>
<TBODY>
<TR>
<TD><SPAN class=detail-name>Requesting Driver Instance</SPAN></TD>
<TD>HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&amp;VEN_10EC&amp;DEV_0888&amp;SUBSYS_104382FE&amp;REV_1 001\4&amp;22ba60&amp;0&amp;0001</TD></TR>
<TR>
<TD><SPAN class=detail-name>Requesting Driver Device</SPAN></TD>
<TD>High Definition Audio Device</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></DIV>
When I saw High Definition Audio Device I racked my brains to recall exactly what changes I had made there when recording the LPs. Then I remembered that I had ticked a box to allow me to hear the audio from the Line In. I went back to untick that box and rebooted. I then reset the power settings to let the PC sleep and lo and behold it worked again.

I nearly came undone when, to verify that this tick was the offending item, I ticked it again and sure enough Hibernate function failed again. The problem was that after unticking it again, the function did not restore.... However, after a bit of fiddling around and rebooting, it did again and it is now seemingly OK.

I hope this solution is a help to others who come to this post looking for assistance,

Thanks again to all who replied,

Roger
