I used the power saving settings to go into hibernation after 20 minutes. the computer powers down, and the green power button turns amber. most of the time, i can wake the computer up by just hitting a button on the keyboard or shaking up the mouse. as a last resort i'll press the power button.

twice yesterday, it wouldn't wake up no matter what i tried, requiring a hard boot. any ideas of what could be causing it, if it could be bad for my computer, and how it can be corrected?

and generally - in terms of being good for your computer - whats the best way to manage power? turn it off at the end of the night or let it hibernate?
