thank you Shawn, straight way gained back 5gigs on my system, when i set the hybernate, i had no idea this was happening, and i keep a sharp eye on my memory, i used the command prompt, because i started out in dos in the mid 80's learning to be a programmer, and am more familiar with it, but i'am still missing about 5gigs, guess i'll have to start a thread or do a little more archive hunting, anyway thanks as always when i come here i always get real working solutions. tothe3rdpwr

i had hibernate active cause i thought it was cool when i closed my laptop, i could come back to my session, web and all, but i like movies and music, and always kept track of my harddisk space, cause they eat alot ( click, start, go to computor and a quick glance shows your available space) when i began to notice 5 and 10 gigs at a time vanishing, with no downloads, so i came here, and got the answers i needed, i also got back 10 more gigs by using a program that is in "system mechanic" called " program accelerator " which realigns programs and dependant files, but it can take more than 2hrs depending on the size of your HD and how jumbled your files are, system mechanic is free to dwnld, and program accl. will work but its a trial version, but it did get the job done, i also believe that a boot time defrag will also help which i believe also helps in system performance ( i have the paid ver.) hope this helps, and weekly maintenace is a good idea and will prevent alot of problems, its like getting a cold, you were already sick but its not till you crash that you really notice. also check out the tutorials on freeing up hard disk space, very good stuff....

(OPTION ONE) (To Disable Hibernate) NOTE: This step will disable hibernation, delete the hiberfil.sys file, and remove the Allow hybrid sleep and Hibernate after Power Options under Sleep.
but it will leave 'hibernate' in 'Battery>Critical battery action' in power plan. I was working ignoring 'battery low' warnings and suddenly KABOOM! screen black, no power. System didn't shutdown/sleep when battery got critical, it was set to hibernate but the function was disabled. (windows 7 Pro x64)

Hello mt12345,

Hmm, interesting. I never noticed that before. I updated the tutorial for this to help others avoid that.

Thank you.

hibernation--disable "wake on..." "feature"

Hibernation is working fine for me, but soon after it completes, the system wakes up, probably as a result of receiving an e-mail. I want hibernation to last until I turn the machine back on.

How do I do that?
