    Hi,
    I'm wondering what determines if Windows goes into hibernation. I have my hibernation set for 15 minutes, but if I'm running defrag, or Malwarebytes, which can take a long time, it seems to go into hibernation regardless. It doesn't go into hibernation when I using the system; so what is it that prevents or allows Windows to hibernate .... keyboard or mouse activity???
    Thanks,
    .... john

    Physical intervention from the user stops it from hibernating.
