    My wife's computer has been displaying an error ever since I enabled Hybrid Sleep & Hibernation on her computer:

    Dell Vostro 1400
    Vista Business SP1 - 32 Bit
    Intel T7250
    3GB RAM

    I created a customized power setting for her that did the following when operating under batteries:

    Shuts down monitor after 5 minutes
    Shuts down HDD after 15 minutes

    In advances, the relevant (I think) settings are:

    Sleep after - 15 minutes
    Allow Hybrid Sleep - yes (on battery)
    Hybernate After - 120 minutes (on battery)

    When she shuts off the computer by closing the lid, the computer goes to sleep no problem. If you turn it back on within 2 hours, no problem. However, if you turn it on after the 120 minutes, she gets a message that "Windows has recovered from a serious start up error". That being said, we have not found any ill-effects after acknowledging the message. I have also attached a screen shot a details from the event viewer that captured each time it has happened.

    In the interim, I have disabled Hybrid Sleep, but left the hibernation on after 120 minutes. I set the computer to hibernate, and it restarted with no error messages.

    Any thoughts as to the cause of this? Is the solution a simple OS bug, and I should simply leave Hybrid Sleep off?

    Any help would be appreciated.
