Cannot Hibernate Computer

My laptop is a t400 thinkpad lenovo with windows 7. Whenever i try to hibernate it, after the screen turns off it beeps and the "sleep mode" led turns on. The computer doesn't go to hibernation and power doesn't go off. In this situation the only thing i can do is to push the power button for four seconds to kill the power manually and off course next time i turn it on it asks to load the safe mode because of improper shut down. I tries system recovery of windows but it didn't help. The shutdown and sleep both work properly. Anybody has any idea how can i fix this?

Hibernate Mode Still Use Battery

I use windows 7 ultimate 32 bit v6. 1. 7600 on my laptop hp which full compatible to windows 7. I have all my drivers up-to-date. When i finished my working session, the battery remains about half, and i started hibernate mode last night. Today morning, i booted up my system and i was surprised that the battery was nearly empty. I think hibernate mode doesn't use energy at all, so i wonder why this happened?

Also, my pc can't start hibernate or sleep mode although i enables this feature. When i click hibernate from start menu, my pc log-off, and then it nearly restarts. So please explain to me why, and what should i do to use hibernate and sleep mode on my pc. Ps: i could still use hibernate or sleep mode on vista 32-bit before.

System Freezes After Hibernate

I have a toshiba t135-s1310 laptop running windows 7 64-bit, 4gb restarts quickly with no issues. However, when waking up from hibernate mode, the computer freezes and must be turned off manually. This only happens in hibernate, not sleep/standby. All drivers are updated, bios updated, virus scan done; i can't seem to find any issues. I never had any problems up until last week: i was in the middle of a word document, and the computer suddenly froze and restarted itself. Since that point, the hibernate function doesn't work properly. Any ideas?

Keyboard Does Not Work After Sleep / Hibernate

After i updated to windows 7 (clean install from xp) my keyboard (standard ps/2) will stop working after my pc goes into sleep or hibernate. I changed the keyboard settings to "allow this device to wake computer", which works for sleep mode. However, once the computer goes into hibernate the keyboard will once again not work and the "allow this device to wake computer" box is no longer checked. The drivers are up to date. Is there a fix or work around for this?

Bsod - Usbhub.sys On Shutdown / Hibernate

A few days ago my computer with a recently installed windows 7 build 7100 start getting a bsod every single time i shut it down, restarted it or set it to hibernate. I've tried updating all ubs drivers in device manager but they were all up to date and didn't help. I tried restarting it with not a single usb device plugged in. I normally only have a usb mouse and sometimes a exhd or ipod plugged in, standard stuff. I tried doing my own research for the problem elsewhere but couldn't find any answer.

I also tried windows update and installed these three new optional updates but that failed to make any difference either. What other information do you need about my computer to diagnose the problem?

Random Shut Down In Sleep & Hibernate Modes

I recently installed windows 7 professional on my hp laptop and i have the following problem: when i enter the computer into "sleep" or "hibernate" mode, after a certain period of time (usually a few hours), the computer will automatically wake up and the screen will go blue for a split second before the computer shuts down completely. When i turn the computer on again, it says that it has been shut down improperly and prompts me whether or not i would like to boot normally or in safe mode. When i was using windows xp, i had no problem leaving the computer in sleep mode for days at a time. Does anyone know why i might be having this problem with windows 7?

Do You Want The Following Program To Allow Changes To This Computer

I always get message "do you want the following program to allow changes to this computer?" When starting mozilla thunderbird after upgrade from vista to windows 7 home premium. I have changed the "privilege level settings" of thunderbird to "run this program as administrator", but it still makes me log on as administrator every time i start thunderbird to see my email.

This is not only annoying (i.e. Having to login as administrator every time i start thunderbird), but also prevents thunderbird from starting when accessed, for example, from "windows photo viewer" email button (apparently, it tries to start thunderbird, but doesn't have enough permissions so fails).

I don't get this with any of my other applications (e.g. Firefox, etc. Run fine without requiring me to logon as administrator). I'm not sure if i have installed thunderbird odd, or did something else different, but this never happened to me in vista. I don't want to remove all uac security for all programs. What can i do?

Computer Sleep

I set my computer to sleep after 30 minutes. It did go to sleep. When i moved the mouse to wake it up, only the wallpaper loaded up. No icons at all. I had to turn it off by the on and off button on the tower. Not a good idea, but that was the only way i could restart my computer, after it turned on again all my icons were there and i was able to resume all the functions again. Any ideas how to set it to sleep without this problem? This is a new windows 7 computer. Hp pavillion elite 137c

Computer Not Updating

My computer is set to automatically update every day, but has not been updating at all for the past year. When i check for updates, a message appears that says "failed"  and when i look to see the list of things that try to update, they all say "failed. "  When it searches for updates, a code comes up that says "error" with a bunch of numbers after it. Because of the computer unable to update, i am no longer able to print or open up any microsoft programs, such as word or excel.

When i try to open these programs, it tells me that not updating the computer could affect the stability of the computer and that i would need to go to windows update to install new updates. When i opened up windows update, it said that i must first install an update for windows update. I clicked "install now" and it attempts to install, but then goes right back to the original page.

The other night i went online to see what else i could do about this. Several websites said that the problem was most likely from the catroot2 folder and that renaming this folder to catroot2old would fix the problem. I tried this and it would not allow me to change the name. Now i don't know what else to do.

Cannot Boot Up Computer

I cannot seem to load my windows operating system. Before this problem occurred, my computer was installing windows updates, but then it freezes and i had to forcefully shut it down. After this, everytime i turn on my computer, it will take a long time to load up and then it shows that windows is on stage three out of three of installing updates, but it always remains at 0%. Fter two or three minutes, my computer will just reboot and start the whole process again. Now it keeps looping, and i cant even log on my user.

Registration On Second Computer

I recently purchased windows 7 to put on an old xp machine. Not long after that, the machine had a motherboard failure, and was not worth repairing and is unusable. I went ahead and installed the purchased version of win 7 on yet another machine, but windows will not activate. Im sure its because i had activated it on the other machine, but now am i just out of luck. I spent quite a bit, and only got to use the os for about a month. I was hoping since i was no longer using it on the broken machine i could use it on another. Is there any way to activate it?

Installing On New Computer

I am going to be receiving a refurbished computer here soon, i have purchased the windows 7 copy to upgrade from vista. My question is do i just do upgrade or customize and do like a clean install. I will have really nothing on this computer other than what comes on it already. If i do a clean install do i lose things such as (and i know these arnt important things but there just small easy details to elaborate with) solitare, calculator, and meaningless things that like. Or are all of those things then re-installed with the windows 7 reprogram, or will all that stuff then be on other software disks i receive with the computer. Again sorry to sound stupid just want to make sure i do things correctly and should i just do the upgrade or a clean sweep on a new system.

Usb Is Recognised, But Does Not Appear In My Computer

I've searched through the forums here, and tried many of the answers people have given for this problem. I tried unchecking the 'hide empty drives in the computer folder' option. I also tried going through disk management and changing the drive letter, but this option does not even appear. The drives are marked unallocated, and the only options i have are about shrinking or spanning volumes. The drives work fine in other computers, and is recognized when it is plugged in because it gives me the 'remove safely' option.

Update Restarts Computer

Each night windows update restarts my computer and updates my driver software for wireless. I have to roll back the driver to get the wireless to work. Not sure why this is happening or what the root cause is, but each night the driver is updated by windows update and the wireless radio won't work. I then go and roll back the driver to the previous version and it works perfectly. I have 64 bit windows 7 hp laptop with an atheros ar9285 802. 11 b/g wifi adapter. If i click update driver in the device manager the same thing occurs.

Waking Computer To Print

I've read all the topics on sleeping and waking i could find but nothing is like my problem. I have two hp computers running w7 through a wired linksys router. One computer (a) is connected to my usb printer. I have shared the printer and if (a) is awake i have no problem printing from computer (b). If (a) is asleep the printer doesn't print. I've read about wake on lan (wol) and have played with the interface adapter settings on (a). If magic packet is unchecked, then computer will try to go to sleep but will wake soon after.

I suspect there is some traffic from the router (maybe) that wakes the computer. If magic packet is checked, computer will not wake when i try to print to it, so i have to run upstairs and wake the computer to get it to print. How do i get (b) to send the magic packet when it prints so that (a) is awakened? Is it something i need to do in (b)'s setup? Is it something i need to set in windows? Or in each application (word, excel)?Or am i trying to use the magic packet incorrectly and really need to keep it unchecked and do something else to my network?

Computer Performance / Speed

Before i switched to 7, i was running xp with little problems. I was able to play most of my online games at the highest settings with minimal video lag and a ping of around 60. I was also able to run crysis , crysis: warhead , and crysis wars on the "high" setting (setting levels from lowest to highest are: "low", "medium", "high", "very high") with a few of the options on "very high". But now with windows 7, i can't play any of my online games without having a ping of at least 200 and i can't even run crysis or any of the other crysis series games listed before on "low" or any other setting.

In addition, with xp my hard drive that i use for everything other than the os (games, programs like audacity, videos, pictures, etc. ) Was about 3/4 full, and with windows 7 the drive that is serving the same purpose has 218 gigabytes free of 414 gigabytes and my hard drive that has the os on it has 29. 6 gigabytes free of 50. 6 gigabytes. I have no idea what is going on. I have a legitimate copy of the os, my friend has windows 7 as well and isn't experiencing these problems, and isn't windows 7 supposed to make your pc run more efficiently?

Computer Running Slowly

My computer runs very slowly, from booting up to opening applications, to searching on the net. I downloaded a registry cleaner and it had said that i had a lot of errors, but i did not know if i should pay for the download to fix the registry. I do not have any experience with the registry, and i have read it is very bad to mess with it if one does not know what they are doing. If someone could please help me in determining the problem and point in the right direction i would certainly appreciate it! Also is there a particular registry cleaner i should download? I would also like to add that the computer always sounds like it is thinking (constant noise coming from the tower).
