Windows 7: Can't hibernate after 2nd installation added to bootlist

Can't hibernate after 2nd installation added to bootlist

After SIW2 solved my issue Possible to have C for two partitions in different installations? yesterday, I now cannot hibernate. I believe it has something to do with the "SYSTEM" partition as I have experienced this issue before on another computer. I'm guessing it happen after I added the second installation to the boot list and may have screwed something up.

Any ideas?

Ben, please post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

Check your Power Options to see that nothing's changed for Sleep and Hibernate. Set to 1 and 2 minutes to test.

Check also through these same steps for Sleep Mode Problems.

Reinstall the display driver. After uninstalling it in Device Manager deleting the software when prompted or in Control Panel, enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) then check for any Important and Optional Windows Updates to see if WIn7 has a preference. If not then import it from the Device or PC's Support Downloads webpage.

I was able to solve the issue. I unmounted the "SYSTEM" partition so I could mount the other and forgot that Windows uses that partition for Hibernate and Sleep. I have remounted it and can successfully hibernate again. I was going to double-check that before even posting here but ended up forgetting. I guess this can serve as a note to anyone else who may be thinking of unmounting the system partition.
