    Hi,

    I am running Windows SP2 on a Sony Vaio Laptop. It currently does not have hibernation enabled, and there's no hiberfil.sys in the c:\ drive.

    When I try to enable hibernation in the control panel, it gives the error: "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"

    Any one have any idea how to solve this problem?

    From the link I posted:

    After answering those again, the tech then had us run 'msconfig'. We 'disable all' on 'Startup'; 'Services', 'boot'; 'WIN.INI'; and 'SYSTEM.INI'.

    We restarted the computer and was able to 'enable hibernate' in the Power Options.

    We ran 'msconfig' again and 'enabled all' on the 5 sections.

    We restarted the computer and the hibernate works fine.

    According to the tech's response from Microsoft:

    Action: Hits hibernate button.

    Result: A process is currently running that is preventing another process from going into hibernate.

    Cause: Startup group items were preventing hibernate.

    Resolution: Performed clean boot of the system by removing all startup group items. Now able to get into hibernate. Rechecking startup group items didn't have any effect on hibernate. It seems that it only affected it when hibernate was disabled.

    I tried removing all start up items, and still no dice? Does it have anything to do with Deamon Tools being installed? Is there any way to get around it? I'm only using version 3.47 which AFIAK is much less intrusive than 4.xx
