Hi helpful people. Last night I tried to hibernate for the first time and, well, it didn't work. I'm on Windows XP Pro and my Power Management tells me that this computer can hibernate and that I need 512mb to do so. I have over 3gigs of space on my H/D so I know that's not the problem. The problem occurs when I return from the hibernated state. After bootup it goes to the black screen where you see the progress bar "Resuming Windows". When the bar goes all the way to the end my computer just freezes. I couldn't do cntrl+alt+del so I had to press the reset button, which I hate doing. Then when it booted up again to a screen with two options (I forgot exactly what it said). Something about deleting the last restoration and booting normally, the other choice I don't remember. I chose the first one and Windows XP booted as usual. So my question is, why isn't my computer returning from hibernation?

As any tech will tell you, don't use hibernation use low power settings if you do not wish to turn your comp off.

FWIW, IMO hibernation is a joke. You'd be MUCH better off just turning it off and rebooting it when you want to use it again.

All I could see that it did was waste 512mb of memory for the hibernation file. :D

Yeah its better just to let your computer sit there running instead of hibernating because you will run into problems with that. You should just disable it so you can save some disk space also
