have you tried running chkdsk on your drive?
I have never got on well with hibernate on any O/S. But that's just me...

Changing the WinXP file structure from FAT32 to NTFS seemed to help mine.
I guess I'll be joining the gang. Same thing happened to me for the first time last night. Mine happened a lil' differently though, I went to the mall and turned off my car, pulled key out and realized that I left my sunroof opened.. so I quickly slid the key back in to shut off sunroof... the hyber/shutdown process had already started.
Went back to car after 30 mins and drove to Walmart... PC didn't turn on... After Walmart went back to car and when PC turned on it gave me the message...
I picked the first choice "Delete Restoration blah blah"... PC froze! I reset it and it still gave me the message... so I picked the second choice "Start Windows Normally blah blah"... and it started Windows but it froze again!!
SOOOOO, I decided to pull the power plug from the Opus for like 5 seconds, and I also unplugged the USB for my GPS receiver... After I put everything back together - BOOM - everything booted up properly and the PC started working fine again...
... it hasn't done it ever since... hope it stays this way...
VER. 3.0- Check out below:
so i think i've worked out my SODIMM A socket is screwed... only one of my 265mb rams works... so maybe that could be the reason for all the other problems, or maybe it's just a new, unrelated problem... anywho...
I too was getting:
"The system could not be restarted from its previous location due to read failure"
turns out, my ntkldr file somehow got replaced with the standard windows xp ntldr. dont know how it happened, but i have a feeling the ewf manager somehow reverted. either way.. i'm fixed. make sure ntldr shows up as 263k in explorer. hope this helps someone.

I've been told it could be due to the lilliput touch-screen drivers. I'm not going to unplug my touch-screen though
you don't need to do it permanently, you just need to find out what is causing the problem, if you can. Once you know what is causing the problem, you can start working on solving the problem.
Try unplug all your accessories. sp you run at minimal system setup.
*Check the bios settings. try default if you have changed alot
*Check free space on system drive
*format and install XP to a NTFS drive or you will lose alot of security and performance benefits.
*disable->restart-> enable hibernate, dont know if this option helps but some stuff for windows seames to work for reason when you restart service.
My hibernation works great until i pluged in my Wify 108 Mb unit.
Its preventing the computer to hibernate so working on a shutdown script..
