We have a hollow door to our bedroom, which when opened, gravity pulls it back to a 1/2 open position. How can I adjust the door so that it stays fully open when we open it?

Just loosen the hinges, and shim out the bottom hinge with a thin hidden-behind-the-hinge shim (I use old utility knife blades, etc.), and tighten them all back up.
The door is just out of plumb.
Easy fix. Just adjust it with shims until it stays where you leave it.
Good Luck!
