Windows 7: Hibernation removal?

Hibernation removal?

How do I stop xp mode hibernating? Every time I start xp mode from my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit it says that it is opening it from hibernation.

I do not use hibernation for any Windows mode.

regards,

Beemer

Hello Beemer,

You would need to change the Windows Virtual PC settings for XP Mode to have Shut down selected instead for this like below.

Hope this helps,

Shawn,

When I checked, Shut Down and not Hibernate was selected in both Windows XP Mode.vmcx ands XP Virtual machine.vmcx.

Something must be invoking hibernate as a separate task

Beemer, here's how to manually delete XP Mode hibernation data and force XP Mode to reboot next time it's launched: XP Mode freezes on "Loading your settings" screen

Also, change the Close action (screenshot in Brink's post above) to Prompt for action. This causes XP Mode to ask you every time it's closed if you want to hibernate or shut down.

EDIT: About that file XP Virtual Machine.vcmx you mentioned: it's totally unknown to me, does not belong to XP Mode. Check the other thread of yours regarding this unknown file.
