Laptop won't hibernate following virus removal

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I recently removed 2 viruses from my Dell notebook using Malware Bytes. Everything seems to be back to normal, but I still can't go into hibernate mode. It will just stay at the 'preparing to hibernate' screen and not go any further. Can someone please tell me what this might mean, and how it might be solved? Hoping it doesn't mean there's still a virus acting up!

Thanks for any advice you may have!

Welcome elisnewton -

Have you updated Malwarebytes and run a quick scan since this time ??

Current versions are V1.46 ,update Version 4362 as I type this -

Please update and run the Quick Scan only (about 10 mins) and post back if there is still a problem -

Thank You -


I would prefer to turn off the notebook rather than using Hibernate most times -
