I have just rebuilt my custom build computer and have installed Windows 7 Home Premium.

All is working perfectly except for a problem I'm having with Hibernation. When I completed

the installation I found that there was no way to select Hibernate rather than shut down.

I checked on Google and found a way under Power Options to enable Hibernate so that I would

have that option when I wanted to shut down the machine. The Hibernate feature is there and

it does shut down. My problem is that after 30 seconds the computer starts back up!! I am sure

this is a settings problem but I just don't know what to do. I would sure appreciate anybody that

could tell me what I need to do. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

Have you checked the event log for any errors that happen when it hibernates and or device(s) waking the computer? I had a similar problem with XP some time ago, turns out it was my wireless adapter.

Network and sharing Ctr>> Change adapter settings>> Rt-click network adapter- choose "Properties">> configure" >> "power management" tab

Un-check: allow this device to wake the computer
