Problem Hibernating in Windows XP

By trustfundbaby ·
I am having a problem getting my PC to hibernate.
Whenever I startup my computer, I can have my computer hibernate just fine the first time. But if I try to hibernate any other time after that, it goes through the motions (screens blank out) but the hibernate animation never comes up, then it boots back into windows, and I get this Yellow exclamation point in my system tray that says something to the effect of "Insufficent Resources available to complete API".

I don't know why that is.
I have an intel P4 2.53Ghz, running windows XP with SP2, 1.5GB of RAM, 2 hard drives (Swap file is on the second hard drive) on an Abit IS7 motherboard.

Any help will be appreciated.

Additionally, when this happens the hibernate option disappears from the dropdown list of options when I click on Start > Shutdown.

My paging file is set to 2400MB - 4092MB

Download latest motherboard drivers to see if this fixes the problem.

Turns out that its a well known problem with systems with RAM over 1.5GB or so ... doesn't seem to be a fix for it as far as I know ... or is there? Anyone else have any ideas?

hi,

Putting your computer on standby or in hibernation requires firmware that uses Advanced Power Management (APM), or preferably, that is ACPI compliant. To avoid problems, review your system documentation or the manufacturer's support Web page for information about determining whether your firmware is current. Using updated firmware is especially important when you use ACPI functionality.

Upgrading to the latest system firmware can resolve problems, especially for ACPI systems. For x86-based systems that are equipped with an APM-based (non-ACPI) BIOS, disabling APM might eliminate startup problems, such as instability or Stop errors, until you can obtain an update. For more information, see article 237673, "How to Troubleshoot STOP Error Messages After Enabling Advanced Power Management," in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. To find this article, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base link on the Web Resources page at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/reskits/webresources.
