Ever since I reformatted my laptop, it just hasn't been the same. Before reformatting I noticed that if it was in standby for around 24 hours, it would automatically wake up and go into hibernation. I think that's a pretty cool feature and I didn't mind it.
But lately, it's been waiting only a few hours (maybe 3-6; I haven't really timed it or paid enough attention) before waking up from standby and going into hibernation. There have been a few instances where this has been bothersome, and I'd like to change it back to a nice long wait time.
Where is this setting? What setting in Windows controls the time before the computer wakes up from standby and goes into hibernation?
Edit: maybe this is an uncommon thing, caused by my drivers or something. I'm not sure if my laptop can detect battery life while in standby; my experience is that it doesn't. It apparently does this wake-up-and-hibernate thing to save battery life in advance, in case I were to leave it in standby for an extended time. There is nothing wrong with my battery; I bought it just a few months ago straight from Dell, it lasts over 2 hours of run time (good for this 4-year-old 17" gaming laptop, haha), and I am plugged in most of the time so all of these times I put the PC in standby from 100% battery.
So if you don't know about this behavior or your computer doesn't do this, can you give me a clue as to exactly what might cause it? Maybe then I can research hidden driver configurations or something.
