Issues that may come up
The hibernation feature in a Windows 7 computer system may experience some issues. You may receive error messages that tell you that it is not able to enter the standby mode. Sometimes, the system fails to resume from standby or hibernation and even when it manages to resume, it works abnormally with some kinds of audio, video, or mouse control problems.
Incompatible or outdated device drivers
If you are running your computer with outdated drivers, they may fail to support power management and may lead to Windows 7 hibernate issue which is related to incompatibility. This kind of behavior prevents your PC from resuming from the hibernation state. In order to avoid such a situation, you should always install the latest and the most updated operating system in your devices, especially the audio and video devices.
If you are running an incompatible software program in your PC, the installed components of the program may interfere with your power management settings. In that case, you should contact the vendor of that software for the updates
Peripherals like modems, video cards, CD and DVD drives, and SCSI adapters come with diagnostic software programs which allow you to verify the installed version of the firmware. If your peripheral firmware has become outdated, you need to install the required updates immediately.
If the hardware components attached to your computer do not support hibernation, you might be using an outdated hardware device. This means that older hardware devices did not support ACPI and the only thing you can do when this Windows 7 hibernate issue arises is to change your hardware device.
