To determine if your computer supports hibernate and standby features



In the Run dialog box, type powercfg.cpl, and then click OK.

In the Power Options Properties dialog box, verify that a Hibernate tab exists. If present, select the Hibernate tab, check the Enable hibernation box, and click Apply.

In the Power Options Properties dialog box, verify that an Advanced tab exists. If present, verify that Standby and Hibernate are selectable options in the Power buttons drop down lists.

If the Standby and Hibernate options are not present, then your computer does not support these features.

No.......basically, if U look at the Error Message, sone other program is "engaging" the Hibernation files, and I am NOT sure which one, this is NOT a very simple problem,
Tried Goggling it, unfortunately, the answer to this problem, requires me to subscribe to their service. Thanks anyway for responding
