I currently have a similar setup where I have the OS on the EWF/HORM partition and my FE(Road Runner)/Winamp on the other.

I didn't read/find anything about "unmounting" a partition prior to creating the hib file when using EWF/HORM on another partition.
Could you please explain this? I would greatly appreciate it.
yes, you need EWF in order for HORM to work.
See my site for instructions for both.
I found a problem yesterday that sounds just like that. I use a dinovo mini keyboard. I normally keep it paired with the internal bluetooth so I can keep the dinovo dongle free for my HTPC when needed (2 dinovo's, one dongle). However, I wanted to test it out by using the dinovo dongle kept in. It was plugged into a d-link powered 7 port usb hub. I kept noticing that it would go into hibernation fine, but when I would start up, it would be a cold boot.
Found that after it went into hibernation, something with the dongle would wake it back up (probably legacy USB support that I leave on for emergencies). After it came out of hibernation, then it would shutdown cold. Removed the dongle, and everything was yipee skippy again.
