Either way the PC is powering down normally during sleep now and that was my biggest concern, Im sure MS will fix it properly at some point.

Thanks for the replies.
The problem isn't specifically Windows, it's some of the things that newer SCSI miniports do that Windows doesn't handle without the code changes in the hotfix to work properly. The reason you don't see hibernate anymore is that you're using hybrid sleep, which is better (machine sleeps in deep sleep, but has all memory in a hiberfil just in case hibernation is necessary or the machine loses power). It's a better way to use the machine - benefits of hibernation with the resume speed of sleep.
