    Any way to speed up the resume from hibernation?

    BESIDES getting less RAM?

    I was just curious, maybe reducing the virtual memory size? Any other idea's? I resume in about 30 seconds but its always fun to try and speed things up.

    how long of that is POST?

    the scsi card I use at home (yeah, its old) takes 10 seconds to start up by itself.

    I bet that you can disable services that you dont need, and hardware you dont use and show some improvement.

    take a look at http://www.blackviper.com/ for info on unneeded services.

    If you can, disable any devices that you don't use (in bios)

    You could always try linux

    Ultra 320 SCSI RAID with 15 drives will probably be much slower. The RAID bios will initialize each drives and any arrays before loading or resuming the operating system.

    To gain a bit more speed, try tweaking the bios / POST. You can disable memory checks, and turn off IDE channels and other devices that are not being used. Instead of auto detecting the harddrive or other devices, see if you can specify them manually. You may lost a bit of plug and play functionatily in trade off for quicker boots. Search google for more information.

    When resuming from hibernation, I'm don't believe windows loading play a factor. Instead it only involves restoring the state of your ram from disk. To speed this up, having less ram or a faster drive may help. The only other factor is bios POST time.

    I searched google for some more information on xp hibernation (os hibernation in general) and tweaks, but I came up empty handed. I'm curios to find out what steps are necessary for hibernation / unhibernation at the OS level.

    Does Windows send out any kind of flag that can be picked by programs when a PC is about to go into hibernation?

    and also any kind of flag to say it's just come out of hibernation

    WM_POWERBROADCAST with a WPARAM of PBT_APMQUERYSUSPEND, then PBT_APMSUSPEND, and when it resumes PBT_APMRESUMESUSPEND.

    All the drivers have power functions that are called so they can perform any state saving and restoring that they need so having less drivers may speed things up slightly, but it's hard to tell how long that part actually takes.
