Getting out of Hibernate

Posted by elks (My Page) on

I have an old Compact laptop. I just updated Avast, and the laptop told me it was going to Hibernate, which it did, and I can't get it up and running again.

Help, please!

push the power button, wakes mine up
hold the power button in maybe 4 or 5 seconds resets it when stuck.

RE: Getting out of Hibernate

Well, duh! It had run out of battery power, and I forgot to plug it in (the adapter was plugged into the computer but not the outlet).

Thanks, Mikie. That usually works for me too. I really can't use this laptop anymore without it being plugged into the mains.
