How can I avoid my PC hibernating after sleeping?

  1. #11

    Here's how I solved it: I still don't know why this fixed the problem. While looking at Disk Management, I found an 8GB "hibernation" partition, the same size of my RAM . I removed this partition with a third party application and the problem has dissapeared. My doubt is: if I had disabled hibernation as explained above. Why did it continue to hibernate solely because there existed a hibernate partition?. What created this partition?

    I suspect it is a function of the motherboard that is independent of windows, perhaps in the BIOS? It was nice enough to stop working when the partition went away (rather than crashing the machine or something). Maybe you could find it in the motherboard's documentation. In any case, glad you got it to stop!

BSOD while Hibernating, Sleep, or even Shutting down the PC.
Hi, whenever I put my PC to sleep or hibernate, and even shutting down. Everytime it boots from sleep, hibernation or cold boot, I get BSOD. I don't know why. I have even updated the Drivers for Acer this morning. So, I am not sure what the problem is.
