when you see "stand by", click "shift", you will find "stand by" changed to
"hibernate".

Subject: SOLVED by hotfix KB909095 (Hibernation disappears in XP
if 1GB or more)

The reason: The problem is when you upgrade RAM to high size
(1Gb or 2Gb), XPSP2 fails to enlarge accordingly the
pagefile.sys file; attempts to hibernate fail, either before or
after, and cause Windows to temporarily remove Hibernate from
the Shut Down options - but without alterating your personal
Power Profiles. Restart restores Hibernation - thus your
original profiles.

The fix: the hotfix of KB909095, that will be added in XP-SP3,
and that meanwhile you will get for free by calling Microsoft in
your country (2.5MB). Details below.

GB makes Hibernate mode disappear...
http://forums.agilix.com/forums/4254/ShowPost.aspx
recommends the hotfix KB909095 for hibernation disappearing in
Windows XP with 1 GB RAM or more

<<<<< KB909095 excerpts BEG
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909095/en-us:

SYMPTOMS
You use a computer that is running Microsoft Windows XP with
Service Pack 2 (SP2), Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition
2005, or Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. When
you try to put the computer in hibernation, the computer
occasionally does not hibernate. When this problem occurs, you
receive an error message that is similar to the following:

Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API.

When you experience this problem, the hibernate feature is not
available on the computer until you restart the computer.

This problem typically occurs when the computer uses 1 gigabyte
(GB) or more of RAM.

CAUSE
This problem occurs because the Windows kernel power manager
cannot obtain the memory resources that are required to prepare
the computer to hibernate.

RESOLUTION
A supported hotfix is now available from Microsoft... This
hotfix may receive additional testing... we recommend that you
wait for the next Windows XP service pack that contains this
hotfix.

To resolve this problem immediately, contact Microsoft Product
Support Services to obtain the hotfix.

Google "How to get hotfix 909095"
http://www.google.com/search?q=How+to+get+hotfix+909095

http://www.ntwizards.net/2004/10/13/hibernate
- exchanges about finding and explaining the flaw
- explains how to get the hotfix, but I would change the end:
13. Real Support Rep will e-mail the URL for the wrong version
of the hotfix, and a PWD.
14. Real Support Rep will call you a few hours later, and when
you report the version was wrong, send you the right one
(2nd email OK for me. Expect 3rd or more depending on your
care at spelling "KB909095" and your OS and language - and
on your luck).
15. Download within 7 days (2.56MB). It's a ZIP, that asks you
the PWD for unzipping. That PWD is 7 days too. Contents is
"WindowsXP-KB909095-x86-ENU.exe" (2,531,056 Bytes). Execute
it.

The total process was 5 hours in my case. It is tedious, but you
have no other options. In the 1st call, you first suffer at
least 6 minutes of vocal messaging cascade; then ask "I want the
hotfix of KB909095" (don't miss the KB number, spell it very
carefully, and don't say anything else - or you enter infinite
complications). The careful spelling may make them email you an
URL to the right version as soon as in the 2nd try (if in the
1st, please report).

Subject: Hibernation disappears from "Power Options"

My current laptop has Windows XP Pro US. As on my other PCs (all
with W2KSP4 US or FR, or previously with W98SE US), I set it up
so that pressing the Power On/Off button, or pressing the Sleep
button, or closing the lid, makes the PC hibernate.

Unfortunately on my WXP Pro laptop, I often find it in Stand By,
and opening "Start > Settings > Control Panel > Power Options"
shows no more "Hibernation":

- in "Power Schemes > Settings for Merlin power scheme",
in the 2 columns ("Plugged in" and "Running on batteries"),
I have only 3 lines:
"Turn off monitor", "Turn off hard disks", "System standby";
- in "Advanced > Power buttons", I now have "Stand by" in the 3
lines (lid, power button, sleep button), instead of my
previous "Hibernate" setting. I still have "Hibernate" in the
3 drop-down lists, but if I select them, click "Apply" and
quit, then come back, I see they have been at once replaced
with "Stand by".
- in "RegEdit > HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg\
PowerPolicies", I have again 2 keys named "17", "18",
but deleting them doesn't bring Hibernation back.

Anyone can help? TIA,
