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.

Anyone? I'm not looking for anything TOO in depth, just some advice on which direction to go. Thanks.

Hibernation problems...sometimes are linked to video drivers...you might try uninstalling/reinstalling your video drivers.
