    Windows 8 Hibernation Resume Issue


    I've ran into an issue recently that makes resuming from hibernation impossible. When I go into hibernation and then try to resume, windows begins to load but the loading icon below the windows 8 symbol is laggy and glitchy. After sitting for about 5 minutes it doesnt resume and I have to power it off. I've also noticed that when starting up that the loading animation doesnt even appear, but it will still boot. Any idea how to fix this?
    I'm trying to defrag and see if it fixes it, if not I'm gonna put in the windows 8 CD and try to repair the system. This all started after I ran Advanced System Care Pro. Its not a virus because I have the paid version and have used it in windows 7 perfectly. Its obviously not compatible with windows 8 even though it says so. I've also tried a system restore to the time before I installed it.

    I find that hibernation isn't working very well here either. It does come back up but it loses context with some of my USB devices and seems to "re-install" the drivers. Then it wants me to do a restart. Nuts to that.

    Sleep mode works fine but not hibernation. Until they fix it, just go into the advanced power settings and set the sleep timers to 1440 minutes (24 hours). That way your machine will sleep but not drop into hibernation unless you leave it sleeping for a whole day. If I'm going to leave it for that long I shut it down anyway.

    I managed to fix the issue on my laptop. I had my boot timeout set to 10 seconds which caused the resume to not work properly. In windows 7 this made the resume and boot much faster but in 8 it doesn't seem to have the same effect.

    Which issue was it that you fixed ... USB shutdown? Where's the boot-timeout setting and what is it for?

    Thanks,
