    I found a little vbscript that detects hibernation, and I modified it to do some stuff for me.


    My post is only a second or two, and resume from hibernation (to music playing) is less than 15 seconds, including post.

    I played around a bit with bootvisBootVis , and it did seem to help a little bit, but it wasn't exactly a scientific test.

    Do you still have that VB script?

    I want to use that script to automatically lock my door and arm the alarm before going into hibernation.

    I found a notebook drive RAID! Won't slow down post, and speeds up disk access.

    I think it's just something to add to my wish list for now though.

    I wrote a small app to do this before.. but it only kills Winamp processes:
    Small App: WinampHelper

    I can try dig up the source code if you like.
    Btw, you can also speed up resume from hibernation by defragging your hibernation file. I don't know if standard windows defrag does this, but tools like Executive Software's Diskeeper will do it.

    This seems 2 work

    On XP pro try GPEDIT.msc ....computer config/Admin template/system/Logon and enable Always use classic logon and disable Dont display the getting welcome screen.. seems to speed up resume from Hibernation you get a different log off menu which includes Hibernate & you loose the getting started screen no bad thing.
