RAM: Fixed my XP hibernate issue with 2GB RAM

Posted on July 24, 2006. Filed under: Software |

I finally got around to fixing the hibernate issue on my notebook. XP has a known issue on notebooks with more than 1.5GB or RAM whereby it won’t hibernate properly. Rather it will wake up, stay warm, flatten your battery and then give you a ‘Insufficient system resources’ error in your system tray.
Now, the fix has been available for ages, by simply calling Microsoft Product Support and getting them to email it to you. But I have just never got around it to it. Anyway, I was heading out on the weekend and wanted to hibernate when I thought I’d just google the problem. Sure enough, someone has the hotfix generously hosted on their site. Downloaded it (here) and all is fixed. Why didn’t I do this months ago?
