    I don't remember anyone saying that hibernation in WinME is OEM only. And also, if your system can handle the hardware requirements, then it's a great OS to use, at least in my opinion.

    Its a feature meant for OEMs, since there is a strict hardware guidline for the hibernation tab to even show up in the power managment options. For example, I have a SCSI controller, which means that I can't use hibernation with WinME (even though the hibernation feature in Win2000 works perfectly). Its pretty f---in lame. Some the other requirements are that the sound card and modem have WDM drivers loaded, there are no legacy devices, and that the videoo card is ACPI compliant.
