I have a HP WindowsXP, I went to the power options properties at the top there are 4 tabs, power schemes, advanced, UPS,and Away. This pc is on all the time, if I can't get it to turn off, can I just turn off monitor? I didn't know if this should be on all the time or what. It used to be it would shut off awhile by itself, it said monitor going to sleep, now just stays on all the time....HELP :thumbsup:

Most problems with Hibernation can be traced to corruptions in your video drivers. I'd suggest uninstalling them, then installing the latest version available from the manufacturer of your video chipset (not the PC maker).

Let us know the make and model of your PC and we'll see what we can locate for you.

Is your computer a custom built system - or is it from a major manufacturer (such as Dell, HP, Compaq, eMachines, Gateway, Sony, Lenovo, IBM, etc)?

Under Power Schemes Tab, select Home/Office Desk
Settings for Home/Office Desk,
Turn off monitor, make your choices from the drop down menus
Turn off hard disks,
System Standby,

Advanced Tab
Select the option you want
Power buttons, from the drop down menu select Shut Down

Hibernate Tab
Check or uncheck Enable Hibernation (your choice)

UPS Tab
pretty much configures itself if you have one hooked up.

Do you shut down the computer at all, Using Start/Turn Off Computer?

Multi-Boot, Vista Ultimate x64, Windows 7 x64 & Windows 8 Pro x64

OK, you don't have a hibernation tab, and you've got an HP computer. Either on the side or on the back of the computer will be a little tag with information about your system (see this link for a description: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...duct&dlc=en ) Locate the number at the circled 1 - that's your model number. With that we can find your video drive and give you instructions on how to load it.

Normal screensavers don't harm your computer - but there are one's that aren't as nice. If you're not having any problems other than the hibernation, I'd suppose that yours was OK.
