Hibernate Function now Won't Work

I had until two days ago four JPG's that would not delete due to a "cyclic redundancy check". I was told to run chkdsk /f on this. I did and that got rid of the thumbnails which would freeze my system (Win XP sp2) for several minutes if I opened that folder.

However, now the laptop no longer will hibernate. I go to the "hibernate" tab in power options, and click "enable hibernation", and "apply" or "OK".

I get a popup error - "Power Policy Manager unable to reserve hibernate file" with "Access is denied"

How do I get hibernation to work again?

Oh, and I also restored system to the previous day, and that didn't correct it.

Hello Lego-Man,

Try disabling hibernation, restarting the PC and then enabling it again.

You can access the hibernation options through control panel > power options > hibernate.

The laptop isn't giving me the option to disable it. The popup error I get is from the power options area.

Do you get any errors in the event logs if so what error?
Do have you Alcohol 120%, Daemon tools or other CD/DVD emulators because these have been known to cause certain issues with hibernation. If you have them installed, uninstall them and try hibernation again.

I have never heard of them, so I don't think so. This only started to occur after I ran chkdsk. I'm thinking a file disappeared or something like that.

Most of my software is older image editors that I really like.
