How long does it take before it hibernates if left untouched?

Have you looked in the Power Options in the Control panel to see what the amount of time is set to for it to hibernate?

Start> Control Panel> Power Options

Try gently wiggling the power cord - does this make the power/charging light go on and off? If so, it could be a loose connection that's preventing your battery from fully charging.

Also, check the battery life when you resume from hibernation - is it unusually low?

Actually it hibernates even if im doing something like playing online games.. etc., i already "checked" never hibernates on power options... it happens sometimes after 4 hrs of using it....

The power chord is good, the battery life remains at 98% after it resumes from hibernation.

I have tried checking the life of my battery and it last for about 1 hour.

Any ideas?
Tnx.

Have you blown out the innards with a can of compressed air? If you get a lot of dust when doing this it could be that the laptop was overheating and it hibernated in order to save your stuff before it shut down.

FYI - don't use a vacuum cleaner, or an industrial compressed air supply. The vacuum may create static electricity that will damage components inside the case, and the industrial compressed air is too powerful for the delicate components inside of the case.

I tried to blow w/ a can air but no dust is visible or the air cant blow the dust.... by the way i put my laptop on a table w/ a glass, when i touch the glass it was as hot as my laptop, so i think the glass prevents my laptop from cooling down and it generates more heat causing may laptop to overheat and hibernate. So i tried to remove the glass and put my laptop directly on the table surface (wood) and so far so good, no hibernation since then.

Im getting a CPU temp. of 53-60 Celcius and CPU core voltage of 0.95V on normal use, and when im watching some streaming videos or playing online games im getting a CPU temp of 65-76 celcius and CPU voltage of 1.3V. Is this normal for a laptop w/ a Intel Centrino Dual core Processor?

Sounds like overheating to me. If you don't want to send it in for repair, I'd suggest one of those laptop cooling pads that are sold in most stores that sell laptops.

If it were me, I'd disassemble the case and check to ensure that all the cooling parts were in place and functioning properly. I'd also re-grease the processor heatsink with some thermal paste to ensure that it was working well. It's a labor intensive job, but there aren't many parts that could be replaced (so most of the cost would be in labor).

But, a good technician will talk with you first to see what's happening, and then will troubleshoot it himself to see exactly what the problem is (this may increase your cost).

You can find tutorials on disassembling most all laptops on the Internet. Just to get you started I found this site which explains how to change out the hdd on over fifteen different manufacturers and over a hundred models of laptops.
