I have windows 7. I used to hibernate it, though it rarely resumes after that. It starts resuming and stucks, then I turn off the laptop, start it again and choose continue resuming. Then the computer is up again. But sometimes some programs do not run properly. Anyway, what is the problem? Best regards

Well, you could have a few different problems. Hibernate is a more complex function than many people assume, because it requires both hardware and program support. First, use Windows Update to make sure you have the latest drivers for your system. To verify that all drivers are properly installed, go to the Start Menu and type "Device Manager" to open the Device Manager program. Ensure that no hardware in your system has a yellow or red icon indicating trouble of some kind.
Next, you should try enabling and disabling the hibernate function. Open the start menu, then type "cmd" and right-click on "cmd.exe" to open it with Administrator rights. Type
Finally, you may have a program running when your computer goes into Hibernate that is not compatible with the feature. If you continue to have trouble, you'll need to make sure all of your programs are Hibernate-compatible.
