If a computer goes into hibernation, am I still being able to access that computer's resources? If not, is there a way to wake up the computer remotely? I was thinking of the remote desktop connection when I said access the computer in hibernation. I want my computer to go into hibernation but then when I'm at work or somewhere else, I still want to access my computer at home. How can this be done? Any suggestions?

I'm trying to figure that out too. My computer at work is set to go to lock mode automatically shortly after I leave it. It's on my agenda to try to solve that one tomorrow. I'll let you know if I solve it.

I read from another forum that once the hibernation is on, that means the computer is power off. So unless you have a wake on lane network card, you will not able to access or talk to that computer which goes into hibernation. It make sense but I still think there must be a way though. Let me know what you find out.

Let me clarify...I don't go into "hibernation" I think the only OS that does that is ME, isn't it? (I could be wrong)....I just have mine set to lock after a specified interval (Win2K at the moment). But I can't see my computer remotely when I get home (I can see everyone elses, but not mine). I just changed OS's though and need to see if I have my drives shared like they should be. Now I can't remember whether I did that yet, and I'm at home now which is why I have to wait until tomorrow.

XP has hibernation, I usually turn the hibernation off because I have seen two or three PC's that won't come backup out of hibernation.
