Hibernate and Standby Issues


Crystal

Question

Hi. I use MyDVD Studio Deluxe version 6.2 (still trial, can't seem to buy license file for it). My system is Windows XP with MCE running on a Dell E1505 Notebook with duo core processor and 1 GB of RAM blah, blah, blah - in other words, it was just bought new from Dell less than a year ago and it's pretty high end.

 

When I burn DVDs, it takes a hour or two, so I want to leave it and go out or go to sleep etc. I have noticed that my computer never hibernates or stands by after the burning is complete. My settings work excellent for standby and hibernate - as long as DVD burning doesn't enter the equation. I have noticed that a pop up message saying, "DVD created successfully" comes up waiting for an click on OK. But I see those types of messages all the time and the computer still sleeps with them on. Am I just stuck with the fact that my laptop will just be on after the DVD burn until I return to say OK?

I wouldn't even think about trying to get my system to sleep while it's working on a project.

You can set the power settings to hibernate or power down after a certain amount of time but again, I caution you on doing this.

I wasn't trying to get the computer to sleep while working on a project (duh!), what I want it to do is sleep after it finishes burning the DVD. Currently, it sits there with monitor on, running, for no reason until I come close it or send it to hibernation manually.

I understood what you meant (duh!) and my answer is still the same! You're asking for trouble but there are widgets and programs with timers to set your computer to go into sleep mode if you want to.
