Resume from Hibernation PAINFULLY slow... (but on only one of two OS's)
So I have a dual-boot setup on my pc... it's a laptop running XP SP2 on one partition and Vista Ultimate on the other.
I spent a whole day doing tweaks to get this sucker to boot as fast as possible without having to go the way of a mini OS (TinyXP etc). I'm very happy with the results of a cold boot... going into both Vista or XP, it's fast.
Hibernation is strange though. In Vista, resume from hibernation is super fast. No complaints. But resume from hibernation in XP, is SOOOOO SLOOOOOW. The main thing I'm running on either partition is Streetdeck, but that doesn't really matter because I close all programs before hibernating anyway. So either way I'm resuming to the desktop with no apps running.
So I'm using identical hardware, but Vista resumes from hibernation in about 7 secs, where XP takes about a minute!!
Any ideas on that? Even if I can't figure out what the big difference is between XP and Vista, I'd really just like to get XP to resume faster. Any tips?
PS - does my paging file size (virtual ram) have any effect on resume speed?
