Less Ram = Faster Hibernate?

Removing ram would be a bad move. What if you need to install an application in the future which requires a considerable amount of it? It would run slow (if it ran at all) if that amount of free ram wasn't available, plus Windows itself would slow down as it would be forced to use more virtual memory which is a lot slower than ram.
2GB is not "overkill" even for Windows XP, and less ram would not reduce hibernation time because, as I said above, only the data that exists in ram is written to the hard disk. Don't even consider reducing the ram - most people wished they had more of it, not less!

My Windows 7 systems resume much faster than my XP (even with lower specs.) But with the hardware connected to it, I can't find any 7 or vista drivers. Looks like I' stuck!
Well thanks for the good info!
