Hibernate does not work anymore in Microsoft Vista

It’s been a while since I blogged last, and even longer since I cleaned and free up some disk space on my laptop. While moving and deleting data last week, I used disk cleanup utility. I cleared couple of GBs using this utility, including Hibernation File Cleaner. Obviously, I had no idea what this would do to my laptops’ power settings and realized it after a few days that my laptop doesn’t hibernate any more and goes to sleep.

After quite sometime trying to fix this, I stumbled across the following knowledge base article on Microsoft Support site: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929658

The fix is really simple; all you need to do is log in as Administrator and run the following command:-

powercfg /hibernate on

You’ll now be able to hibernate again. I’m going to do just that right now! 🙂

Welcome to Mohsin Sumar’s blog

It’s been a while, couple of years actually, since I updated my website. For those who do not know me, please see my biography page for more information about me. I have had my personal blog on my to-do list for quite sometime and finally, here it is.

It’s good to be back. Just to let you know that I will be updating my blog with personal experiences, advises, tips & tricks and more on a variety of topics including but not limited to web development, PHP, MySQL and Apache.

I will also put up my tutorial and download files that I had posted up on Flash-dB where I was a moderator for a long time. My tutorial, in particular, GuestBook Tutorial was released freely and available at http://www.flash-db.com/Tutorials/guestbook/.

You can get in touch with me if you like assistance, however, due to time & busy life we all lead, I may not be able to attend all queries.

Till then,
Mohsin.
