comment Windows 7 Hibernate Problem
Hibernation IS hardware-dependent, though. We recently acquired 2 desktop PCs in my lab which are completely incapable of hibernation or sleep. They can only be either on or off. The reason: those particular Intel chipsets in the motherboard don't support those features because the computers that we bought were intended to be servers, even though they are now running on "regular" Win 8.1 just fine. So, I imagine the hibernation process does depend on the motherboard chipset drivers to execute.

Read the OP's post. What you suggest has already been done.

David, did you not read the OP post? It says clearly that Freeze already set the hibernation settings to be on 30 minutes.

comment How do you easily add equation numbers to Microsoft Word 2010 equations?
In step 4, you meant to write 86% rather than 84%, right? 7+7 = 14. +86 = 100. Anyway, thank you! This is great!

comment Windows 7: Can't access or delete folder although logged in as administrator
I was experiencing this same issue after uninstalling Logitech Setpoint, but in my case the reboot did help -- the folder disappeared after the reboot. Thanks for that comment, Moab.

comment How to replicate pointer acceleration of Logitech SetPoint software in my Microsoft mouse? Any 3rd party solution?
Unfortunately I ended up running out of time to spend on this. Back in school now and no time for anything other than school. Eventually I'll probably look into this again. Winter break or something.

comment Firefox on Windows 7 became an “always top” window
By the way, the thing that bothers me about this new behavior is that it blocks the taskbar! My taskbar is always set to auto-hide, and it's supposed to pop up when I hover my mouse at the bottom of the screen. With FF maximized, it now prevents the taskbar from popping up. Super annoying!

comment Need advice on flashing BIOS on crippled laptop
Oh. That sounds cool -- the open source BIOS. I didn't know about such a thing. So ... doesn't that link I indicated have what you need?

comment Which Windows Explorer replacements have this feature: takes over folder open operations?
Anyway, I changed the title back to my original. It's just that I had a very specific purpose for this thread: I wanted to learn about what software have the feature that I outlined. I do find it very useful what you're saying about replacing the explorer.exe, but I just want to know what programs exist that will accomplish what I want to do without me having to start messing with system files or registry entries. But maybe we can talk about both topics at the same time?
