    Customizing the "Resuming Windows" screen

    I was just wondering if there was a way to customize the "resuming windows" screen that the computer displays when resuming from hibernation.

    I'm pretty sure it would be impossible to get an image to display there but I remember how we used to search through the old Win95 executables to change what the start button said... so is there a way to figure out where windows reads the "resuming windows" text and change that to something cool (ie: resuming carputer, etc).

    Any ideas about the hack so I can change what the "resuming Windows" line says? What about using a program like resource hacker to find what dll has that text and then changing it. Anyone know what file that text would be in anyways?

    Thanks Frodo.

    So I have to use a hex editor to see that? Can I just change the corresponding text and everything work fine?

    No, it's not quite that simple. Use a resource editor. And you'll have to save
    a copy, and change some boot.ini options etc.

    You'll have to

    Actually the "Resuming Windows" text is stored in the file C:\NTLDR

    You can simply change this with a hex editor ("Resuming Windows" is at offset 35990)

    I changed mine to read "Returning to car..." and then removed all the other text that says "Press F8 to blah blah"

    PS: You sound like you know how to use a hex editor, but just incase - Make sure the text you want is less or equal to the length of the one you're changing, or you'll corrupt the file. If you use less characters, replace the left-overs with spaces.
