WOSB cannot wake up my computer from hibernation. Why?
It usually happens when you have incorrectly configured the software or another power management software is causing the conflict. You also need to check the Power Management Setup of BIOS and UEFI and ensure that ACPI Function is enabled.
Is it safe to turn off hibernation Windows?
Hibernation is a process that helps conserve power in Windows by saving an image of the current state of the operating system and all open programs to a hard disk and then powering down the computer. f you’re not using hibernation, or if you don’t need it, there’s no harm in turning it off.
