Can't hibernate

My laptop was infested with malware, and after successfully removing all the junk (with the help of therock :tazz: ) it's working like a dream.

Only one tiny problem, I rarely 'switch off' my laptop, but rather put it in 'hibernate' mode (clicking the power button once). Ever since my malware removal, when I hibernate the laptop the screen freezes in the blue screen with "hiberanting..." and remains on till my battery dies and it powers out.

Is this normal?

Help!

Check Microsoft Update

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue bar, reboot when the bar goes
