Wow, your HDD load time is really up there. I was suggesting a 3.5 drive that you know is going to be faster to see how big a difference it is. You may not see much change from one laptop drive to another.
What you can do is go into Task Manager and click the Performance tab and then look at your Physical Memory. It should say 523???K. Now subract the number below it (Available) and that number should be how much of your phsical memory is being used. As an experiment, turn off as many programs as you can including Frodoplayer so that you only have the bare minimum. Now see how much RAM is being used. Hibernate and then measure how long it takes to load from that hibernation file.
You see, the more RAM being used means you will have a larger hibernation file to load from. If you reduce the amount of RAM being used it should make the hibernation file load faster. That's what NLite is basically going to do, reduce the amount of RAM being used.
