Hi, I have a problem. I power off my notebook and minutes later it is in hibernation.
Also if I am away from the notebook for a few minutes about 10 and I go back to it and I find it in hibernation and I have to Log in?
I tried googling the issue and see there are comments about sp3? The discussion is too techy for my brain to wrap around.
I hope some experienced user can offer a suggestion in plain jargon.
Thank you

Have you checked your power settings?

Power Management in Windows XP

I would recommend disabling hibernation.
