    CPU won't enter Hibernate if 3-D screen saver on (

    Edited by WyllyWylly to add URL code. See the Quick Guide.[/i] <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    This is a problem in which I've found many of the same online searching for a solution. What the problem is, is that when I go to Standby or Hibernate on my computer, it will say "Preparing to Hibernate" infinitely, and also the computer keeps running. The only way to get out of this is the shut the computer off by the button which causes loss of all recent setting changes, etc. Now if your one to say, go to the Windows Update website, they have a patch for it; i've already been there. The message I get for uploading the patch is that my current patches are more up to date than this one. Well obviously this patch is from 2002. (Heres the website to that patch in case you think i'm thinking of a different patch.

    Now the alternative I have currently is that I don't have a 3D-based screen saver on and it works perfectly (Hibernation). But there has to be an alternative, or a solution to this. If you could help I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks.

    Have you already applied Service Pack 1? Service Pack 2 is also due any day now and may well correct this...
