Windows 7: Hibernate makes Windows think drive is dying

I'll probably just avoid using hibernate and see how it goes. Thanks for your help - at least I've learned a few things along the way.

I am running windows 7 on Intel DG41RQ Mobo and Intel E5400 Processor with 2 GB Ram. Sometimes when I hibernate the system - re-starting the system again takes a very long time - that makes you think that something is wrong. Several times it has made me re-start the PC once again. I believe that like XP (when that was launched) it is difficult to come out of hibernation from Windows7. May be developers will notice this glitch and post a patch.

Mine wakes quickly from hibernation and the only problem I've noticed is the spurious hard drive warning I get every time. The reason I wanted to use hibernate (or sleep) rather than powering right down is that I have several users on the PC, and unless I log them all on straight away Windows creates temporary accounts for them when they try to log on. Hibernate avoids that problem but seems to have given me another one. Maybe MS will, in time, patch both problems.
