If I were to let my computer go into sleep mode, if I let it go alll the way into it, I cant wake it up without having to turn it off and back on and having to log back in, not to mention losing open browser windows/tabs, and any other work.
Same with Hibernation, except, I cant stop that....
The simple answer would be to set it to not go into sleep or hibernation, but thats not a solution, just a temporary remedy.

Does anybody know some possible causes or other reasons?
or at least how to fix it?
I know Im clueless.


Edit:
Some extra details.
When I try to wake it from hibernation, my laptops lights will go on. All but the screen, and I know its not a monitor problem. Same thing with sleep mode, The lights will stop blinking, and be on, but the screens just blank.

Hello ComputerTalk-Jayson,

Hybrid mode is to have the computer go to sleep first, then after the time you set will go into hibernation. That is why it is taking a bit longer since your computer is resuming from hibernation and not sleep.

For you what you want, you would need to set your Power Plan settings to "Sleep" and turn off "Hybrid" and "Hibernate" like in the recommended "Sleep" settings in the tutorial below. Afterwards, the computer should wake up from sleep and be ready to go in a second or two.

Power Plan Settings Change

Hope this helps,
Max

Thanks for the response Max.
I'll try that when I get home.
Although, I don't remember having hybrid sleep set.....
It could be the problem, but I'm not really sure.

If It isn't I'll just come back and give more details.
and sorry for being extra late here,
My dad went and took me on a surprise hunting..."vacation"
The house we were staying at had no internet.
