Laptops owners with 2 Gigs of RAM can finally hibernate.

After years of not being able to hibernate, MS finally released a patch that fixed my issue with hibernation. If you're wondering who needs hibernate? I do, and here's why:
  1. Booting my computer is slow
    • I have corporate software that needs to scan my system on startup. booting up and logging in can take upto 5 minutes
  2. I often don't use my laptop for days.
    • Standby needlessly drains my batteries. Nothing worse than pulling out the laptop only to find standby has reduced my batteries to 10%.
  3. I have multiple batteries
    • Hibernate lets me change batteries without rebooting my system.
Good Sleeping
