I have a PC with specs:
- XP SP3,
- Intel Pentium 4 3 GHz,
- Asus P5GC-MX motherbord,
- 2 Ghz DDR2 memory (1 GHz x 2).
I used to use hibernate to shut down my PC because it saves time opening many applications and the data that I use frequently. That worked well.
But, a few days later, my PC does not power off after hibernate. I can see the hibernate progress bar run to completion, but after that my pc is idle and the power is still "alive".
This may sound strange but I suspect my new android smartphone. I bought it recently. I often connect the smartphone to the pc using a usb cable to exchange data and applications. Since the use of the android phone, my pc can not hibernate successfully if
- I connected the smartphone though the usb
- Turned off the data connection
- Unplugged the cable
But, if I haven't connected my pc to the smartphone since the pc was turned on, hibernate can run successfully.
I forgot to say that I installed bluetooth software a couple of days ago, but the software didn't work so I uninstalled it. This morning I ran ccleaner and it seems solve the hibernate problem.
Sorry, It happened again. here what i did. I opened some weight applications like eclipse with android emulator and firefox with many tabs. i used process hacker to monitor cpu usage. when the applications running that hit 60%-70% cpu usage but i can use the application without problem. if i closed the emulator, the cpu usage is low. i did close the emulator before hibernate my pc. but like i told before, my pc was idle and the power was still alive though the hibernate process was completed.
For more informations. i found some errors "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk0\D" in the event viewer. D is my DVD SATA drive. i dont know if the problems related.
