Recently my Dell Inspiron B130 has been having a problem when it attempts to hibernate. It gets stuck on the "Preparing To Hibernate" screen forever. I left it last night and when I woke up this morning it was still there. My laptop is running Windows XP Home with SP3. I use MBAW and SASW all the time and I have Trend Micro AV which is run a few times a week. I saw that Microsoft has a Crash Analysis tool but when I went to the site, it told me that it couldn't find what I was looking for (way to go Microsoft). :thumbsup:

Otherwise, the computer has been running fine. I only seem to have this problem when running on battery power and the battery is about to die.

This only happens when the battery is about to die. I don't choose to put the computer in a hibernate state.

Try reinstalling your video driver and see if that helps:

Always. It's plugged in more often than not.

If its plugged in all the time, then battery should never die, and you wouldn't be having these hibernation issues.
