I am running Windows XP SP2, with latest fixes per the patches from Microsoft, 1.5 GB RAM, Pentium 4 @ 2.0 GHz, three hard disks with 21.1 GB free space on system drive (c:).
A few months ago I started having performance problems. Hibernation was painfully slow. When hard disks were idle and they had to start again because of demand, the mouse and all other activity would freeze up for a short while until the HD operation was completed. Leaving on the HD all the time helped a little, but only a little.
About the time the HD cache stopped working, I installed an ATI Radeon 9200 dual-head ATI graphics adapter and a second monitor, with latest AGI driver and Net Framework 2.0 (1.1 is still installed). Can't understand what, if anything, this would have to do with disk caching...
I selected Properties on my C drive, "hardware", the first disk specified (Quantum FireballP AS40.0), properties for that drive, then "Policies", and got screen "Write caching and Safe Removal." The contents of the screen were grayed out, as if the hard drive did not provide the "Optimize for performance" or "Optimize for quick removal" choice. While the enable cache option was clicked, both were grayed out, which is indicative of current performance.
Any suggestions? I really find hibernation helpful, and want to continue to use it.

Most probably your hardware ie graphic card do not support software requirements.
Autocad 2009 system requirements for Win XP.
32-bit AutoCAD 2009
Running under Windows XP:
•Microsoft Windows XP SP2 operating system •Intel® Pentium® 4 processor or AMD Athlon®, 2.2 GHz or greater or Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 1.6 GHz or greater •1 GB RAM •750 MB free hard disk space for installation •1024x768 VGA with true color •Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (SP1 or higher)
If you are using AutoCAD for 3D modeling, you should bump up your system as follows:
•Intel Pentium 4 processor or AMD Athlon, 3.0 GHz or greater or Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 2.0 GHz or greater •2 GB RAM or greater •2 GB of additional free hard disk space •1,280 x 1,024 32-bit color video display adapter (true color) 128 MB or greater, OpenGL or Direct3D capable workstation class graphics card.
1. Autocad uses a lot of memory. Make sure you the maximum ram installed. You can check the virtual memory if that does not work.
2. Shutting down in the middle of an operation can be that the unit is overheating. Use a cooler, docking station, or stand the book on the side with the laptop lid open about 45 degree angle. Leave it on to see if it shuts down within the same time as when it was laying flat with Autocad running. If it takes longer, the problem may be a fan not cooling properly or allow more cooling during the use of Autocad.
