You talking about going into hibernate or sleep?

While this doesn't help, I do all the geek work for all my friends and one has the acer g2, top of the line lappy and I set it up so that when the lid goes down it'll go into sleep (not hibernate) but just last night he told me that every now and again after waking it back up it displays a hibernate error even tho it was sleeping. Same prob?

I installed the sp1 on it using the file download as the windows update wasn't picking it up so hopefully that fixes it for him.

hmm..Did you check your Video Card ?? Here is my post link regarding this. I had the same problem with my Dell Inspiron which I later discovered that it was due to the Video Card.

1) hibernate or sleep
- sleep actually - but after waking from hibernate
it's been sleeping well actually. so i thought instead of letting it sleep for 16 hrs at a stretch we'll make it hibernate after 40 mins, saving power from off-ing the cpu ram usb etc ... so it woke up just now after 16 hrs, then it slept and woke by itself (ie couldnt sleep properly) and when it tried to re-sleep (or was another phantom re-wake by itself) it crashed.

2) it could well be the video driver but who knows! could be anything! all my drivers are up to date

i guess what i'll do is not let it hibernate.

also can i convert this thread to a POLL?
what do vista users do in terms of hybrid sleep
- no sleep
- sleep only
- hybrid sleep
- what are you talking about?

I have an HP laptop - I use the sleep / hibernate all the time on Vista, and I love it - much better after sp1 too. I've not had a failure yet. It could be related to hardware on your end? New Drivers required from your manufacturers website?

If you read my thread, you will find that there isn't anything to do with drivers and its just faulty video card. The Sleep or Hibernate clashes with the PCI Interrupt and thus crashes. Thats what happened to me, and might be for you too.

I have seen that many have Sleep/Hibernate problems due to faulty Video Card/Vide Card Drivers.

BTW, is your machine Laptop or Desktop and if so, which brand? Did you try to ask the support team regarding this?

i'm pretty sure it's hibernate so i'll just use sleep and see what happens.
it's a dell desktop - they have no idea. i dont want to reformat just because of this.

so i gather from a sample size of 3 that at least 2 of you use hybrid sleep with no probs :)

The Dell Support didn't knew anything even with my case. I was the one who made them understand the problem and since my warranty covered "Collect and Repair" warranty, they sent a person and he replaced the card in my laptop.
