    Automatically bypassing 'Delete restoration data...'

    I've had a bad resume a couple of times on the carputer, and after restart, I get that stupid dialog, 'Delete restoration data or continue with resume'...
    Which isn't a real big deal, EXCEPT you need a ******* keyboard to acknowledge one of the options!!!
    Twice I had to run into the house, grab a USB keyboard, plug it in, and choose an option...

    Is there a way to have Windows automatically choose one or the other after a failed attempt?

    It is likely that your hyberfil.sys (file that stores hybernation data) is screwed up. you cant just delete this file, disable hybernation, then your computer will delete this file. then reenable hybernation. this "should" fix your problem.

    Hybernation settings are located in the power options under the control pannel.

    Disabling hibernation defeats his purpose. This happens to me sometimes as well so I just keep a small usb keyboard in the car for this purpose.

    Thanks, but ummm, did you read my question??
    lol
    When you get the prompt I mentioned, the PC holds for user input...there is no count-down or anything...It'll sit there forever, and when you power off and restart, you get the same prompt...
    The ONLY fix is using a keyboard to select the prompt...

    Unless someone knows another way?

    I never found a way around that either.

    In the end, I just purchased an RF remote and keep that plugged in for those occasions.

    I have a BT keyboard, but that's no good in DOS
    Today, it wouldn't even recognize my USB keyboard up front on the hub! I had to mount it in the damn trunk directly to the board...
    Worked perfectly well before on the hub!

    Yeah, my RF remote takes up a slot directly on the board.

    Doesn't even work on a powered hub.

    not an answer to your original question, but this RF usb wireless keyboard works for me connected to my 7 port non-powered hub whenever i get that annoying delete restoration data screen.

    ok, let me explain again, when your system boots up, it checks the hyberfil.sys file to determine if your computer was in hybernation or not, if this file is screwed up, your computer will see the screwed up hyberfil.sys file, then bring up the prompt. under normal circumstances, you cannot delete hyberfil.sys, because your computer will claim that it is in use. disabling hybernation causes your computer to delete this file. after the file is deleted, you can reenable hybernation, and hopefully, your problem will be gone.

    I know the in's and out's of hibernation...again, this is not what I'm asking...
    Thanks for explaining it to me twice though! lol

    Both times this occured to me, it got to 100% of resuming, and hung...on the next reboot, I get the prompt. Regardless of whether it was damaged or not, it will still resume properly ONCE I tell it to try resuming...

    BUT ALL I WANT TO BE ABLE TO DO IS REBOOT, AND RETRY THE HIBERNATION RESUME WITHOUT HAVING TO ANSWER A ******* PROMPT THAT REQUIRES A ******* KEYBOARD PLUGGED INTO THE ******* PC!!!!
    If you can't tell me how this is possible, then lets just leave it at that, shall we?
    Thank you...
