Hibernation Mode

In Hibernation mode, all power shuts off (the computer does not consume any power). The computer saves all system information onto the hard disk before it enters Hibernation mode. Once you turn on the power, the computer restores this information and resumes where you left off upon leaving Hibernation mode.

There is one necessary conditions for the computer to enter Hibernation mode:

□ The Hibernation file created by Sleep Manager must be present and valid.

In this situation, there are five ways to enter Hibernation mode:

  • Pressing the Hibernation hot key Fn-F4
  • If the waiting time specified by the System Hibernation value elapses without any system activity
  • If a battery low condition occurs and the Sleep Upon Battery-low parameter in the BIOS Utility is enabled
  • When the advanced power button function(s) in the Notebook Manager program is/are set to Hibernation mode
  • Invoked by the operating system power-saving modes

Note: If the computer beeps but does not enter Hibernation mode after pressing the Hibernation hot key, it means the operating system will not allow the computer to enter the power-saving mode.

To exit Hibernation mode, press the power switch. The computer also resumes from Hibernation mode if the resume timer is set and matched.

Warning: Do not change any devices (such as add memory or swap hard disks) when the computer is in Hibernation mode.
