I reformatted my notebook. WinXP Pro SP2 and Office 2003.
Same configuration as before I reformatted except I am not using Norton Antivirus.
I have my notebook power options set to:
10 minutes for screensaver
15 minutes for monitor shutoff
1 hour for hibernation
Since I refromatted last Sunday my computer has not gone into hibernation. Does anyone know what may be causing the problem?
Must be an odd problem. Couldn't find anything on the web about the problem. Even asked the IT tech at work about the problem and he didn't know what would cause the problem
Anyway I did figure out on my own what was wrong.
In Display Properties
Click on Screen Saver Tab
Click on Power Button to open Power Options Properties
Click on Advanced Tab
In Power Button Options
Choose Hibernation in the text boxes for the following:
"When I Close The Lid On My Portable Computer" and
"When I Press The Sleep Button On My Computer"
I have no idea why choosing hibernation for these options is related to making the computer hibernate after one hour of inactivity. It doesn't make any sense to me why these power button options would affect activity power options.
