I am trying to get Ghost 15 wake my Win7 computer up from hibernation, carry out a backup and then allow the computer to revert to hibernation. Have set up a Scheduled task that wakes the computer up OK and runs Ghost which does the backup. However the computer will not go back into standby or hibernation.
Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

The computer will not hibernate during a backup. When it does not go into hibernate, check the status and see if it is backing up, such as an incremental. If so, that may be the problem.

Thanks for that Andy. No, the backup was carried out as it should. Done some more work recently and found that there is an option in Task Scheduler to force the programme, Ghost 15, to shut down after a given time. I have set this to one hour and it is now working fine, fingers crossed. This means I can do my file and folder backup daily and my drive backup weekly during the night. Piy that Norton hasn't built that facility into the programme the same as IDrive.

I would skip F&F Backup and just use Ghost at what it does best, partition imaging.

At the beginning of each month I start a new Recovery Point Set. I do daily incrementals. After the last backup runs at the end of the month I run CCleaner and Defraggler to clean junk and defrag the drives. I have Recovery Point sets going back 6 months.
It is very easy to recover files or folders from a (i)v2i file either using Recovery Point Browser or mounting the (i)v2i file as a drive letter.
