Now this is either a sign of global warning ( :thumbsup: ) or; well I guess that's where you guyz come in. The title says it all, but even when I, and yes I have, enable the little check box under power management, nothing happens. :flowers:

Hibernate

To hibernate manually, select Start, Turn Off Computer, then click the Hibernate button. To set your system to hibernate after it has been idle for a certain amount of time, select Power Options inside the Control Panel (in Category view, select Performance and Maintenance, then select Power Options). On the Power Schemes tab, choose a time next to "System hibernates," then click OK.

Thing is I set it to half an hour. Half an hour comes & goes, nothing, try five mins, nothing.

Does it hibernate when you set it manually? If not, then it's likely a video driver problem. If it does, then there's another problem with the OS that we'll have to troubleshoot.

It hibernates manually just fine, but not automatically. :thumbsup:

If it's a laptop, there's a chance that the laptop manufacturer has disabled the Windows power options. You'll have to use the manufacturer's power options to do this then.

If it's not a laptop, then it's likely that your power options are FUBAR'd. In that case, run SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from the Run dialog to get started troubleshooting this (link to SFC.EXE mini-guide: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43051/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files/ )

John

When running SFC.EXE is it normal for it to keep prompting for CD? I only have an SP1 CD & I kept pressing "Retry". This seems to have done the trick!!! :thumbsup: . The computer hibernates automatically now, however the computer seems significantly faster?!? This seems too good to be true :flowers: Is this 'cus all system files have been reset to SP1?

EDIT: Upon closer examination, although it will hibernate automatically when set to 2-3 minutes, longer periods of time, 20 minutes, appear not to work. :trumpet:

It sounds like there's something "fishy" with your system.

SFC will prompt for a CD, but generally you won't have to hit "Retry" unless the path to the CD was incorrect.

Also, since you only have an SP1 CD - Do you have SP2 installed? Regardless of your answer, I'd suggest visiting Windows Update to make sure that you have ALL the latest updates. If you don't have SP2 I'd strongly encourage you to get it.

I did a fresh install this month & do have SP2 installed, it's the original XP CD that is SP1. I was however constantly prompted for the CD. I visited Windows Update as you said in your guide, the only update needed was a security update for Media Player 10.

SFC.EXE acts funny with SP2 - it's supposed to get the SP2 files from a Service Pack directory on your system, but often doesn't do this. Your's is one of the first systems (that I've seen) that's functioned as it should.

You can alleviate the prompt by slipstreaming your copy of XP SP1 and a copy of SP2 - but why mess with success at this point?

I'd next suggest a repair install of XP - but be aware that this will take significantly longer than SFC.EXE (and it'll redo everything that SFC.EXE has done) - you'll also have about 65 Windows Updates to install afterwards.

The reason for suggesting this is that you've noticed an increase in performance of your system since running SFC.EXE. SFC.EXE only replaces "protected system files" - not ALL system files. The repair install will replace ALL system files. http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Well I'm glad it worked!

One strange thing; when the XP CD is in the CD Drive (E:) it shows what appears to be a Hewlett Packard logo (hp) then XRMHOEM_EN.

Well, I have carried out system repair & the computer runs as slow as molasses, hanging on start up & when connecting to Windows Update. I am considering a fresh install...

I've nailed the source of the problem as being Panda AV. Not sure there is much that can be done about that...

:thumbsup: Cheerz John, SFC.EXE run flawlessly on reinstall, I've learned something new!
