    How to hibernate in WinXP

    How to hibernate in WinXP

    Story: Vista's answer to PC power woes

    To hibernate in Win XP, hold Shift and the "Suspend" button will change to "Hibernate".

    You should reboot once a day, at least, turning off the PC or it will become a turtle.

    Since I changed from TRS-DOS to DOS 2.1 I have known BILL GATES LEFT HIS UNIVERSITY BEFORE COMPLETING THE OPERATING SYSTEMS COURSE. Windows apps leaks memory, I suppose, and the multitasking environment is a joke. If you do not reboot daily, then your computer gets slower by the minute.

    I have had Unix boxes running continously for four years. I have not been able to have a Windows machine that runs for a couple of days and that does not need a format once every two years. Well, my XP is holding, but I have to touch it with gloves if I install or unistall something and I am very careful when I have to shut it down. You also need a UPS if you want to keep Windows sane.

    Use Hibernate and Standby to Conserve Batteries

    The Hibernate function in Windows XP Professional can make the batteries in your laptop computer last longer.

    Windows XP supports the industry standard power management technology known as the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI), which enables the operating system to control power to your computer and peripheral devices. The power management features in Windows XP include Hibernate and Standby. Hibernate saves an image of your desktop with all open files and documents, and then it powers down your computer. When you turn on power, your files and documents are open on your desktop exactly as you left them. Standby reduces the power consumption of your computer by cutting power to hardware components you are not using. Standby can cut power to peripheral devices, your monitor, even your hard drive, but maintains power to your computer's memory so you don't lose your work.
    Power Management Performance

    Windows XP wakes from Hibernate faster than any earlier version of Windows. So you can preserve your batteries without taking time to close all your files and shut down, and then restart and open all your files when you're ready to work again. If you need to leave your computer, you can just leave it. Windows XP can automatically put your computer into Hibernate mode after a specified period of inactivity. Or Windows XP can detect when your batteries are running low, and then automatically put your computer in Hibernate mode to save your work before the battery fails. To put your computer into hibernation, you must have a computer that is set up by the manufacturer to support this option.

    To automatically put your computer into hibernation

    You must be logged on to your computer with an owner account in order to complete this procedure.

    1.


    Open Power Options in Control Panel. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.)


    2.


    Click the Hibernate tab, select the Enable hibernate support check box, and then click Apply.

    If the Hibernate tab is unavailable, your computer does not support this feature.




    3.


    Click the APM tab, click Enable Advanced Power Management support, and then click Apply.

    The APM tab is unavailable on ACPI–compliant computers. ACPI automatically enables Advanced Power Management, which disables the APM tab.


    4.


    Click the Power Schemes tab, and then select a time period in System hibernates. Your computer hibernates after it has been idle for the specified amount of time.

    To manually put your computer into hibernation

    You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of either the Administrators or Power Users group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you from completing this procedure.

    1.


    Open Power Options in Control Panel. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.)


    2.


    Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box.

    If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.


    3.


    Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.


    4.


    Click Start, and then click Shut Down. In the What do you want the computer to do drop-down list, click Hibernate.

    If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional with Fast User Switching turned on, the Shut Down menu will present the options to Stand By, Turn Off, or Restart your computer. Hold down the Shift key, and the Stand By button will change to Hibernate.

    Make Windows XP Hibernate

    03.21.02

    There are more options than you might think when shutting down Windows XP, and at least one of them, Hibernate is hidden from view. Hibernate is useful because it saves the status of your Windows XP session (all the programs and documents you have open) to the hard drive, so it can automatically restore it the next time you power up. Here's how to access and use it:

    * Make sure you're logged onto your PC as Administrator or as a user with Administrator rights.
    * You can check the status of your user account by going to Start | Control Panel and selecting the User Account icon.
    * Your account should be listed there.
    * If it says Computer Administrator you have the rights to make this change.
    * To show the Hibernate option under shutdown, select Start | Control Panel, and select the Performance and Maintenance icon.
    * Select the Power Options icon under "or pick a Control Panel Icon."
    * Select the Hibernate tab, and click on the Enable Hibernation box.
    * If Hibernate still doesn't appear, it may be because your PC is fairly new and supports the Stand By low-power shut-down option.
    * To make Hibernate appear in the Turn Off Your Computer dialogue, simply hold down the Shift key and Stand By will switch to Hibernate.
    * You need to hold down the Shift key to see and use the Hibernate shut-down option

    Yes, Hibernating a machine is just you let him sleep a while. so you can get back very fast to the position you left it before. the different between suspend/sleep & hibernate is, it is completely power off like shut down but machine save the details (Drivers/opened programs/running programs...Ect)in hard disk & retrieving those once it powering back. it is very fast comparing to normal power up after shutting down.

    When you suspend or sleep, the machine will disconnect power from some items only & not power off completely.

    Try this, you will see the difference.
