Hey all,

I have a Toshiba Satellite M55-S329 notebook with 760 MB of ram. I recently reformatted this notebook with Windows XP Pro (it originally had and OEM Windows XP Home installed). It works fine, except that I can't hibernate or stand by with it. I know that there should be an enable hibernation checkbox when I got to Power Options, but there isn't. And the Stand By button is present when I choose to shut down, but it is greyed out. Both of these options are also greyed out when I alt-ctrl-del.

Any ideas?

When you try to stand by or hibernate, is your computer in safe mode for some reason? It should tell you if it is right after it boots up.

Most likely you'll have to locate the drivers for your video card and install them in order to enable hibernation.
