    Hibernation occuring too fast on my laptop


    Is anyone seeing any issues regarding hibernation on their laptops? Since upgrading to Windows 10 I've noticed that my laptop seems to be going into hibernation much more quickly than it did in Windows 7. I checked my settings and my screen saver settings and so on are setup to those recommended by HP but these do not seem to be having an impact on hibernation. What's particularly frustrating is that even when it's plugged in if you have a long download/install/update you must keep the machine active by moving the mouse or be active on the keyboard or it will go into hibernation mode very quickly (under 5 minutes). Has anyone seen this and know what it takes to fix it?

    1. Search for Power Options and click the first result.
    2. Click "Change plan settings" next to the selected radio button.
    3. Click "Change advanced power settings".
    4. Click "Change settings that are currently unavailable" (just in case).
    5. Scroll down to Sleep and click the plus icon.
    6. Click the plus icon after "Hibernate after".
    7. Click "Setting".
    8. Change that to zero.
    9. Click "OK".

    Hi moondoggy, no solution but I am having same problem ... in the middle of composing email or word document and suddenly Dell Inspiron decides to hibernate. Frustrating as I then have to log in to regain control. Fortunately all work is as left and I can continue on where left off. My use of mouse or keyboard does not stop the hibernation ... I can be in mid sentence typing when the stupid thing decides to sleep.

    Interesting........ My desktop PC running Windows 10 Pro has the Hibernation setting that your referred to but my laptop does not. Under Sleep it only shows "Sleep After" and under that it has settings for "On Battery" and "Plugged In". Not sure where to go now.

    I wanted to post and update on this problem as I have somewhat if a solution......


    When I go into the power options for my HP Laptop there were 3 configurations listed - HP's Recommended, High Performance, and Power Saver. Based on what I was seeing in the HP recommended configuration I created my own that kept the PC more active and to see if I could delay hibernation more than the 3 minutes I was seeing. Well, my configuration turned out to be no better than HP's but I decided by chance to try the High Performance configuration and it works better. Note that I have not tested this while on total battery but when it's plugged into a power source it doesn't even go into hibernation mode. The screen does go blank when there's no activity but it's not hibernating anymore. I'll take a look at all of the settings and compare them to HP's recommended settings and if I find anything that jumps out at me I'll post an update.

    Just wanted to add to this - I had same problem on HP - this is cure


    I am on HP - here is solution: go to power options, select hp recommended, then click change plan settings to the right of that. Then click change advanced power settings - then under hard disk, change "turn off hard disk after" settings bothe for battery and plugged modes to whatever.

    i think this works
