Why are newer Windows computers so slow in hibernation?
I have been using XP for several years on my carputer, and I have a lot of other computers in the house with it. But I have noticed that the last two or three years computers seems to be slower hibernating and resuming than earlier computers. My old AMD XP2000 hibernates in 6 seconds and resumes in less than 20. But none of the newer computers I have in the house can manage that feat. My Carputer is a lightning fast Aopen i975X-YDG with both IDE and S-ATA drives, and it varies between 16/45 (IDE) and 12/35 (S-ATA). And no, this isn't a memory issue. I have tried with only 512 meg RAM (I normally use 1024), the same as the older carputer, and it didn't change a thing. Does anybody have an ida why this can be?
