    I bought a refurb Compaq laptop for 599$ the day after christmas.

    Twice now its not wanted to come out of hibernate. I press the powerbutton and nothing happens.

    What I have to do is pop the battery out and back in, and then it will boot up just fine.

    It didn't do this until after I reinstalled windows to get all that preinstalled crap off of it.

    Is this a software or hardware problem, and should I take advantage of the 90 day warranty?

    I'd tend to say it's a software issue since you said it worked find until you reformatted. Did you take a look in the power options in control panel for any related settings?

    Yeah, I looked at all the settings and didn't see anything wrong.

    I already nuked the 8gig partition that compaq had their little proprietary ghost image on or I'd reimage it and see if it keeps doing it.

    Any other ideas?
