Almost every time I close my laptop and then open it later, it won't do anything. Sometimes, when I open it, it'll bring me back to where I was, but most of the time, I just get a black screen and I have to hold down the power button and restart it. I think it's going into Hibernate mode. Is there a way I can turn that off? :whistling:

Hi JuiceBox007...

Right click on the Desktop and choose "Properties". Under the "Screen Saver" tab, click on the "Power" button. Under the "Hibernate" tab, make sure the box next to Enable Hibernation is not selected. Apply any changes you make and exit Display Properties.

Does this help?
