    I run into this problem with my desktop at home.
    Here is what happen.
    - The PC hibernate fine when I either Start -> Shutdown -> Hibernate or Push that power button.
    - When resume, the process bar goes to about 99%, PC shutdown.
    What I found out is that the OS HD is on Primary Slave (as it was a slave drive before).
    Fixed that master/slave jumper and the PC hibernate fine for "couple times".
    Now there is a diffent problem.
    It doesn't came out of hibernation. After the process bar complete and the background image show with working mouse but nothing else. Sometime only a working mouse with a grey background. And this is a spanking newly formated HD with only XP and Firefox.

    Wow... thanks matrix.. I had 1 hd on the cable select jumper. I changed it to be pri. master and that did the trick.. well for now its hibernating and restarting just fine. I have yet to experience the second problem that you are encountering about the unable to hibernate. Ill let you know if that starts happening to me. But thanks!!!

    matrix, i can tell you with 99% accuracy that it is a driver problem... maybe not video (since it shows up), not mouse (it works), so check other stuff...

    like sound, try playing somhting then hibernating and see if it plays when you turn it on.

    another thing it could be is the keyboard, take that off and go into hib, if it STILL has that problem, update the video/sound drivers as well and if its still around.. do wifi/lan/all other drivers

    I'm having this issue as of last night. I was able to do hibernate and resume in less that 10 seconds. All of a sudden, I get that "The Last attempt to restart the system..." s**t error. I can not select any of the 2 options as the keyboard (USB) goes dead cold after the BIOS info screen. I tried hitting F8...that doesn;t work either. I have a power brick I made, which I will try the moment I'm done typing. I will check for drivers and I pray its not the HDD. I did do a quick format though on installing windows. (Lord, please help me on this one). :'(

    I must report...SUCCESS!!! PS/2 keyboard did the trick. I thing I messed with the settings for USB in my BIOS, but I picked option 1 to "Delete..." and it took me straight into windows. Option 2 DID NOT work for me. I guess having a PS/2 keyboard will avoid hustles. so my problem solved.
