How & what you use your laptop for should dictate your power scheme. Without knowing what you do with the machine, the best anyone will recommend is the Balanced power plan.

Dude ... Turn Off the CapsLock!

If set correctly, the Balanced plan is configured to put the computer to sleep after it's been idle for 60 minutes or 15 minutes if running on battery power. And to "wake" the machine up, you simply press any keypad on the keyboard or move the mouse. If your machine is not waking up, then there's something else going on.

Vista's Default Power Management Settings are below:

— Balanced (Set as active plan by default) —
Require password on: Yes
Turn off hard disks after: 20 minutes
Wireless adapter settings — Power Saving Mode: Maximum Performance
Sleep — Sleep after: 60 minutes
Sleep — Hibernate after: Never
USB Settings — USB Selective suspend setting: Disabled
Power button action: Shut Down
Start menu power button action: Sleep
PCI Express — Link State Power Management: Moderate power savings
Processor Power Management — Minimum Processor State — 5%
Processor Power Management — Maximum Processor State — 100%
Search and Indexing — Power savings mode: High Performance.
Turn off the display: 20 minutes
Adaptive display: On
Multimedia settings — When sharing media: Prevent idling to sleep

— Power Saver —
Require password on: Yes
Turn off hard disks after: 20 minutes
Wireless adapter settings — Power Saving Mode: Maximum Performance
Sleep — Sleep after: 60 minutes
Sleep — Hibernate after: Never
USB Settings — USB Selective suspend setting: Disabled
Power button action: Shut Down
Start menu power button action: Sleep
PCI Express — Link State Power Management: Maximum power savings

Sleep — Hibernate after: Never
USB Settings — USB Selective suspend setting: Disabled
Power button action: Shut Down
Start menu power button action: Sleep
PCI Express — Link State Power Management: Off
Processor Power Management — Minimum Processor State — 100%
Processor Power Management — Maximum Processor State — 100%
Search and Indexing — Power savings mode: High Performance.
Turn off the display: 20 minutes
Adaptive display: Off
Multimedia settings — When sharing media: Allow the computer to enter Away Mode

FYI ... Sleep problems could be something easy to fix by changing a power setting, other times, a driver or BIOS adjustment & or an update is needed to overcome the problem.

How long have you been having the problem?

Thank you that is just what I needed.I assume if I want to go to Hibernate I would just change the settings just like sleep but turn sleep off and hibernate on.

Thanks Again
