Re^2: Windows 7 is hibernating when FIREFLY is running....

Alex Granovsky

Dear Siddheshwar,

I think it is expected behavior for modern Windows versions running
on notebooks. At least things work similar on all Windows 7 notebooks
I have seen so far. As far as I understand, there is a trigger which
is used to signal OS to suspend itself. This trigger is turned on
when notebook is closed.

So, in brief, you should not close notebook when it is used for
computations but you can turn its screen off using its keyboard
(check for Fn + F7 combination first).

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky

>The problem is solved. I checked for all the power settings. Everything was proper.. I left the laptop idle, with both the lid closed and open. The laptop won't hibernate.. The problem came up when Firefly was running everytime... So this time I tried again with closed and open lid... When Lid was closed, it hibernated again... But when I left the lid open, the problem vanished.. I m happy now. Will be more happier if someone could give a logical explanation. To me it seems like some BUTTON problem, which triggers the hibernation issue..

>>Dear Sir,
>>I have a strange issue with Windows 7. As FIREFLY vs 8 RC is running, Windows 7 hibernates on its own, EVEN if the power settings are absolutely correct. I have noticed that this is happening only when FIREFLY is running. I am unable to run my programs. Please help. However the same FIREFLY version is installed on Windows XP (Desktop PC) and is working fine.
