I'm experiencing a problem with an unexpected hibernation on XP. In short:
-I wake up from hibernation a desktop computer running XP using WOL
-then I perform remote desktop (RDP) to that machine
-after a few minutes, the computer falls into a unexpected to hibernation
I have checked the power management and no hibernation policy is applied after XX minutes of inactivity.
No more machines on the net, so nobody is sending a remote hibernation to the machine.
No software is running that could hibernate the PC.
I have been looking for a similar problem trough the Internet with no success.
Any help or suggestion is appreciated. Thank you.
After some searching, it seems that hibernation reasons are not listed in the event log.

I also noticed that if the CPU or the LAN are working, the system doesn't hibernates automatically. I wonder if the power management policy is different depending if the user makes login locally or via RDP. Anyway, I checked the power management when RDP and everything is disabled.
Is windows silently assuming a special power maganement under RDP?
