    But, but, but, but, I still have a 1GB memory space free. Is it can hibernate or not? And how many hibernation will use the free space?

    That is the Windows XP setting. I ask you Windows Vista settings, not Windows XP more.

There are two ways to enable hibernation on a laptop. When you bootup your laptop, there is a text hint for access to your laptop's setup. It is Del, F2 or F10 most commonly. Look for that hint and enter hte bios setup for your laptop. Once inside the setup, look on all the pages to find the power options for running on Adapter Power and Battery Power. In this area will be an option for the default action when your lid closes. The safest is turn off, but more commonly you will want to user Hibernate. You can set this for the action on batteries and on adapter if you want.

As you may know, hibernation requires and creates a rather large file on your C: drive that contains all the information Vista needs to reload your computer to the exact state it was in at the time you placed the computer into Hibernation.

Also, in Windows also, you can enable hibernation and set its terms. Right click a blank area of your desktop, select Properties. You will see the well known Screen Saver and Desktop Background choices interface. When you click on Screen Saver you'll notice at the bottom right a button titled Power, click on that. On the subsequent page look for and check off the box titled 'enable hibernation'. You will also see the various timeouts for Standby, Sleep and Hibernate now. You will also see options for actions such as closing the lid. You want to be certain that the actions in Windows for the Lid Closure matches the actions you set in the System Setup at boot time.

    Oh. If you only have 1 GB of free space on Drive C you have a problem. You may not be able to go into hibernation due to this space limitation.

    To free up disk space right away, right click My Computer, select Properties, then click on the System Restore tab. Here you can adjust the size of space reserved for System Restore files. Drop yours down to about 1GB. That should be enough. The go to c:\windows\temp and delete everything you can there.

    You also have a temp folder in your user files c\documents and settings\your user name\local settings\temp

    Open your Internet Browser and delete your cache and set the size of cache down to about 50MB which is more than enough.

    Then start looking at programs you've installed but are not being used and uninstall those. You may also look under My Documents and see if you're hanging on to very large files that aren't being used anymore.

    Once you are done, right click on the C: in explorer, select Properties, then Tools and Defrag the C drive.

    When you check for the size of free space now you should have more. Ideally you want to have no less than 10% free space on C, when it falls below 10% you will start to have problems that mimic hardware failures but its the fact you have not enough free space on C:.

    Hope this gets you started. Keep me posted on your results and as always ask using the comment box.

    You understand that to free up space on C for a hibernation file you need to change the system restore files allotment. It is in the My Computer properties pages.

    How much space you will need varies for each computer but it averages around 600MB.

    You can use help to find the location to change system restore allotment for c since I can't recall right now, apparently.

    You can find it. You can do this. You are terribly low on free space and must take measures to free up some room.

    What you remove or don't is up to you.

    Best of luck,
