Windows 7: Writes to hyberfil.sys

Writes to hyberfil.sys

Does Win 7 constantly write to the hyberfil.sys file or only when the computer is going into hibernation?The reason I ask is the only way my UPS can save my work before shutting down the computer in the event of a power failure is to hibernate it so, obviously, I need hibernate enabled, complete with the hyberfil.sys file but, at the same time, I don't want a lot of unnecessary writes going to my SSD.

How do I locate a script that re-writes a registry value?
Right now I am running on Windows 7 home premium 64-bit. There is a legalnoticecaption and legalnoticetext enabled in the registry, and when I delete these values and restart, they re-appear!

pagefile & hyberfil
Just checked my system using windrstat and noticed my pagefile is 8 gig and the hyberfil is 6 gig. This system has 8 gigs of ram plus another 1 gig on the video card. This seems like a huge amount in particularly the pagefile given the amount of ram installed. My question is can I safely reduce...
