My computer will not hibernate. I've been doing Google searches on the topic and attempted to talk to HP tech support online (I get no response), and I still can't seem to solve the problem. Hibernate used to work fine for me, but now when I try it the blue screen comes on for a split second like it is about to hibernate, but then comes back to the desktop as if nothing happened. I don't get any error messages.
I'm assuming the problem is coming from a program running in the background and preventing me from hibernating. Although when I look at my processes that are running in my task manager, nothing seems to be out of the ordinary. I also read that switching to an optical mouse could cause the problem, which I did do recently. But my settings are set so that my mouse can not wake my computer up from hibernation.
I tried disabling hibernation, restarting and enabling it again -- which did not work. I even tried doing a system restore, which also did not work.
I am out of ideas. Can anyone please list some steps that might be able to help? Attached is a list of system processes that are currently running. Could anything listed be causing the problem?
I am running Windows XP. Please let me know if you need more information.
