Exclamation Don't ever use hibernate with XP!

Yes, the unthinkable happened-nuclear war is easier to contemplate. My system hung on boot from hibernation (not standby) and then went into a endless boot loop. I freaked, big time.

I managed to get things going again, with lots of trouble but ended up reinstalling XP so I lost all of my settings, preferences, etc. but data was intact, thank God. It'll be a long time before everything is 'just so' again.

I have to remember that our pics are nothing but little 1's and 0's that could cream in any time when I'm looking at the latest shot on the screen!

Avoid using hibernate, whatever you do!

Is hibernate mode the same thing as sleep mode? Because I "Sleep" my XP computer all the time.

Interesting. I've used Hibernate mode many times and never had a problem.
