I could always close the lid and it would hibernate, now all of a sudden it will not work. I have no idea what's going on. Please, if you can help me please post because this is really annoying me. :thumbsup:

Can you manually set it to hibernate? Try shutting down the computer, and in the box where it says "Standby" "Turn Off" and "Restart" are you able to click on the "Standby" button? If so, press the "Shift" key and the "Standby" should change to "Hibernate". Does the computer hibernate this way?

If not, then I'd suspect that there's a minor corruption of your video drivers (this accounts for most hibernation/standby issues that I've seen). The "fix" is to uninstall your video drivers and then install a freshly downloaded copy of the latest version for your system.

If you can't locate the latest video drivers for your system - post back with the exact make and model of your laptop and we'll see what we can find.

Actually, I can't get it to hibernate manually either. I'm also not sure how to uninstall or install the drivers so my laptop is Gateway MX7525.

Id be more inclined to beleive that this may solve the issue: BIOS Update from Sept 3rd 2008. Since the BIOS is what controls the power settings and the other ACPI Controls.

I've also noticed that when I do Windows+L it says I have 1 program running but I have no idea what could possibly be running.

Unfortunately, we do not allow the posting of HiJackThis logfiles in this forum. I've sent a copy of your HJT log to you via PM and have deleted the post that contained it.

In my opinion you may have an infection on your system, so I'm going to move this topic over to the Am I Infected forum.

I suspect malware because of the presence of this file on your system: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/r....exe-17316.html
