My (boo urns) work Dell D630 was recently upgraded to a whopping 2GB RAM, which is paltry by today’s standards, but what are you going to do?
Anyway, ever since then, XP has refused to hibernate or suspend, which is painfully annoying when all you want to do is head out the door. After a couple of weeks just dealing with it, I finally did what I was supposed to do and found this site which let me know that MSFT, in their infinite wisdom, didn’t account for >2GB of RAM. Here’s the link to the hotfix.
Finally, I can tell my laptop to hibernate, and not find out 4 hours later that the strange whirring sound coming from my car is in fact the Dell, all tightly wrapped up in my work bag.
