How to kill hibernation ?

by narozilenko / September 9, 2007 1:56 PM PDT

Hello

I want to use my pc to display a certain webpage on a tv screen.
I succeded in dragging the webpage sideways so it shows on the tv screen, but now the pc energy savings makes it disappear after a while.
How can I change this and make the display steady, for 4-5 hours at least ?
I tried from control panel but it did n't seem to work or I did n't do it properly.

Have You Tried?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 9, 2007 2:27 PM PDT

Open the Control Panel, then double click on the "Display" icon, then click on the "Screen Saver" tab, then click on the "Power" button. When that opens, click on the "Hibernate" tab, if it's there, then UNCHECK "Enable Hibernation", then click on the "Apply" button. Next, click on the "Power Schemes" tab at the top, then select the drop-down arrow in the "Power Schemes" section and choose something like "Presentation" from the selections.. Next, in the lower section, make sure that the items all say: "Never", then click on "Apply", then OK.

When ever you decide to use the TV screen display, then change the power option to "Presentation" and it should stay on at all times.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.
I think that 'll work.
Also perhaps you can tell me what to do if instead of one webpage-one tv screen, I want to display two or more webpages in two or more tv screens.
This is meant for something like a shop window decoration.

Google Is A Great Tool

Do a search for "Dual Monitors" and you should be able to find exactly what you're looking for. Here's one such link:

http://www.realtimesoft.com/multimon/faq.asp

Since most desktop video cards aren't configured for two monitors, you may need to install a graphics card to support each of the displays you intend to us. There are "dualhead" video cards but most standard machines don't have them. Others here may have some good suggestions for your situation.

Hope this helps.

Hello.

Thank you.
I will look at those links.
Btw, the answer to my first question was, unfortunately, wrong.
To prevent the monitor from going black it's the screen saver in display options you have to adjust and not power options as I found out !

Please Read It Again... Not Wrong..

I stated things correctly. Reading carefully, I wrote "if it's there" simply because there are a multitude of different configurations and although the "Hibernation" box should be UNCHECKed in order to verify that hibernation is not enabled, other options can help the situation as well.. Generally, the machine won't hibernate unless that box is CHECKED.. UNCHECKING it, as well as performing the other options suggested will normally prevent hiberntion from occurring.

Basically, there are generally multiple ways to accomplish the same task in Windows.. We all choose different options that fit our tasted.. Keep up the good work.

Hope this helps.
