Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook

1 Answer

Neither Sleep nor Hibernate are available as options when I go to the Start menu on my Lenovo T410. They appear grayed out in the list that contains 'Switch User', 'Lock' and 'Restart'. Pressing Fn-F4 results in no action; closing the lid results in no sleep. The Power options do not include Sleep or Hibernate for actions such as closing the lid. Any thoughts?

It sounds like a failed motherboard, If it was stuck in sleep mode the computer would still turn on.

try leaving the battery removed plug in the laptop and see if it turns on, if not it sounds like a bad component on the motherboard.

My Vaio doesn't go to sleep/hibernate when closing the lid


Maybe the little sensor or pin that sticks up and is pushed in when you close the lid is broken and the software doesn't realize the lid has been closed.

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.

On my panasonic viera tv i cannot set the sleep timer. the date/time are set properly but when i push 'menu' and then select 'timer' i am not able to select any of the options listed. please help!


If it is grayed out as an option on your menu, go down to Setup, then select Advanced Setup, and make sure "Auto Power On" is set to "off". This should then make the sleep timer function available to use.

The sleep and hibernate buttons are grayed out. Running XP SP3 and on a Sony Vaio VGN-T150


install the keyboard drivers, go here:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCVW600G

Go down to the keyboard section and download that piece of software and install it. That should take care of the sleep and hibernate buttons not working.

My laptop was on hibernation. now it is not booting. please help


Hibernation is enabled by default in Windows Vista, and is one of the seven options (i.e. Hibernate) that appears on the Vista shutdown menu. Hibernate your Vista system will enable you to quickly restore to existing system state and intact workspace instead of start afresh, run programs and open your documents one by one again. If you do not use the hibernate feature in Vista, and want to delete hiberfil.sys and then recover the space occupied by the big hibernation storage file, the hibernation function can be turned off and disabled.
Unlike Windows XP, users cannot turn the hibernation on or off via Vista GUI interface anymore. Previously users can enable or disable hibernation via Power Options applet in Control Panel. This option no longer available in Windows Vista, which also enables Hibernate ability and creates hiberfil.sys by default. Instead, users have to rely on command line utility Powercf and Disk Cleanup Wizard to disable hibernation in Vista. Microsoft KB920730 provides details on how to disable and turn off hibernation on computer running Vista system. You must log on to Vista with user account in Administrators group to perform these action.


Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt or Cmd, and then click Run as Administrator on the pop up contextual menu.
If you are prompted by User Account Control for permission, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: 

powercfg.exe -h off
Type exit, and then press ENTER.

Another easier workaround for those who’re not comfortable to work with command line is to disable hibernation and hybrid sleep feature in Windows Vista is by using Disk Cleanup wizard tool, the built-in Windows disk cleaner to delete hiberfil.sys file. The hibernation file must be enabled to access the hybrid sleep feature and the hibernation feature in Windows Vista.
Click Start button, then go to All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools, and run Disk Cleanup.
Choose which files to clean up, either My files only or Files from all users on this computer is fine. 


On “Drive Selection”, select the Windows Vista boot drive to clean up. Note that you must select the drive where Vista is installed, which normally is also the boot drive (C:) as hiberfil.sys file will be located on the root folder of it. 


Once Disk Cleanup finishes scanning the system, Disk Cleanup for Vista window will open.
Select and tick the check box next to the Hibernation File Cleaner. 



You can select or deselect other type files to clean or preserve from the available items or options in the list provided.
Click OK button when done.
Hibernation will now be removed and disabled.

It will solve your problem.

How I can enable Hibernate and Stand By button? I have windows XP SP3

You can enable hibernation in Windows XP by following the steps below.

4)Click Start, and then click Shut Down. In the What do you want the computer to do drop-down list, click Hibernate.
