View Full Version : Hibernation mode makes soundcard go mono

06-08-2003, 11:25 PM
Hi there, I have configured my computer to go into 'hibernation' mode when shutting down at the end of a session. Restarts fine and allows me to continue working where I left off, however when I use any sound applications they only play out of one channel of my soundcard. This doesn't happen if I shutdown normally.
I am running Windows 2000 and have a Soundblaster soundcard.
Any suggestions as to how to get a stereo signal when using 'Hibernation' mode would be appreciated. Thanks.

My experience is that hibernation gives a range of problems, none of which have ever had a "solution" apart from not using it.

Many software packages have given odd (but repeatable) problems, such as missing cursors after hibernation. I gave up using it after having issues on 3 separate and different PCs, over the last few years

On this new laptop, it will fail to restart the wireless network adaptor in 1 out of 10 wake-ups.
