    hibernate

    I would really like to add the hibernate feature to my Win 98 PC. Does anyone know of shareware/freeware/commercial utility to do this? I've searched all over and can't find anything. I don't want to upgrade to Win ME just for this.

    Re: hibernate

    I don't like it and do not use it.
    I think it is HARDWARE related, if you hardware is built for it.
    Select the Power button on your screensaver tab of your Display properties.

    Hibernation is a bad bad thing. I've seen laptop loose data and program files coming out of hibernation, if it comes out at all.

    Re: hibernate

    I frequently 'hibernate' my computer by depressing the 'power' button. It wakes up again when I depress the 'power' button again. If it's an issue of boot-up time, that's completely different...

    Re: hibernate

    I have found that the boot from power on is just about as must time (if not shorter) as it takes the hard drive and monitor to wake up from hibernate.[img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Re: hibernate

    Agreed, I also agree that 'hibernation' or 'sleep mode' are extremely unreliable... [img]/w3timages/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Re: hibernate

    Hey - I've not heard of hibernate before - but it this the problem I've been having? My PC appears to freeze and the only way to bring it back is to touch the power button lightly (I was actually attemting to turn it off at the time and to my surprise, it came back to life in tact)
    Its damned annoying - how can I turn it off? I've looked in the power management section of settings but "never" seems to be the default for everything.

    Re: hibernate

    The only thing I can think of on that one is the monitor settings... some newer "user friendly" machines have all sorts of added "features" meant to "enhance" the computing experience... (My, just look at all those ""'s!!!) You may check your Start menu for programs by your computer manufacturer which control power-management, or check your display properties to ensure that it isn't your monitor...

    Hope that helps!

    Re: hibernate

    Hibernate is a pain in the proverbial!

    To turn off try this. Click the "Power Manager" under "Control Panel". Under the "Power Schemes" tab select "Always on" then select "Never" in all six boxes, "System Standby", "Turn off monitor" and "Turn off hard disks", these are repeated for both mains and battery.

    If you're using a laptop you MAY want to review the battery settings. I live and breath by my "larry" and these are the setting I use. It means reduced battery life but far fewer problems in general.
    Hope this heps.

    Re: hibernate

    I've never had any problem with Standby under Win98SE (not a laptop). I just wake up in the morning on the way to...and tap a key. On the way back, I hit my shortuct key for Netscape & get my coffee. Gives me at least 10 minutes in the Lounge before I have to leave for work.[img]/S/grin.gif[/img]

    I only turn it to "never" when I'm doing a backup, scan, or defrag. Knock on [img]/S/woof.gif[/img] (well, they don't have one for wood yet)[img]/S/grin.gif[/img]

    Re: hibernate

    I use it all the time on my notebook. If I am working offsite and off external power, then, I just close up my notebook and it automatically suspends. After a configurable period (I have it set to 30 minutes) it does a full hibernate to disk.

    Just open the notebook back up and press either shift (for resume) or power-on (wake from hibernate) when I am ready to use it again.

    No problems, and I do it all the time.
