  • Alternative to Hibernation..

    I'm planning to use Windows XP in my project, but the problem is that the motherboard does not support Hibernation.

    I remember that somebody mentioned 3rd party program for XP that did same as hibernation.. saves memory to disk and allows quicker boot..

    But i cannot what that program was.. or is it even possible if motherboard does not support hibern.?

    If somebody knows any of these programs, give me a shout..

    My boot time is now about 1min, after nLited installation. next step would be hibernation and EWF, but that damn motherboard is now giving me a hard time.

    And changing the mb is not an solution...

      Pretty much every motherboard supports hibernation, if not all.

      Check your display drivers to make sure they are the correct drivers.

          make sure hibernation is enabled in windows. go to control panel -> power options and make sure that it's enabled there.

          i believe it's off by default.

            The problem is that i dont even have that tab in Power options.

            Does anybody know what things i should left alone when using nLite, so i dont broke hibernation?

              Did you untick the turn hibernation off?? If not you will have disabled hibernation on your install.

                    I checked.. and it should be on (not ticked)... i currently installing full XP setup. Just to see if it allows me to hibernate.. If it does, then the problem is in nLited installation..

                      Have you got the correct graphics drivers installed? i.e not the standard windows ones? Check under device manager.

                          Yup it does, the graphics drivers can stop the hibernation/standby functions from appearing.
