x230 refuses to hibernate - Win 8.1

#1 Post by anarky321 » Fri Oct 23, 2015 8:37 am

computer is set to hibernate at 100m, even if MANUALLY hibernated it just shuts down, automatic hibernation also ends in shutdown

How do you differentiate hibernation from shutdown?

Is "fast startup" enabled?

hibernation opens all your apps as they were before you hibernated

i have "intel rapid start" enabled in bios

Run powercfg -a from the command prompt. Does it mention Hibernation anywhere?

Does shutdown /h hibernate the machine?

That's a pickle.

What about hibernation in safe mode?

Also, did you check the Minidump folder under the Windows folder to see if any crashes have been logged there? Sometimes a driver issue can cause the PC to crash when it attempting to change power state.
