Why would the computer suddenly hibernate? It said it was going to, and\nseemed to shut down.\nI pressed the button to turn it on, and it came back from the start up.\n\nWas that the right thing to do? Could it do any harm?\n\nI was just using Google and didn't press any other keys etc.\n\nIt's possible that what I was looking for (in World War Two) is still\nsecret, and Britain or America does something to computers hunting for it.\nCould that be so? Can they get into computers and do that?\n\nOr is it just something technical?\n\nIt's a puzzle. I didn't even know computers could hibernate, though I've\nseen it "entering sleep mode" sometimes when I turn it off.\n\nOutlook Express, XP.
