    when you press the power button it dose not power on. the battery is charged and its also plugged in. i tried with the bagttery out to and nothing. all it does is shine the green lights and then six seconds later the lights shut off. the screen never lights up.

    I hope you have a warranty... I had a similar thing happen to one our laptops at work. I had the tech out here the following morning to replace the motherboard. It's been fine ever since.

    The C840 is pretty old. Probably the power supply is dead, and probably the power supply is built into the motherboard, so if you still have a service plan with Dell, now's the time to use it.

    It sounds like you can't tell when it's in hibernate mode.
