Hi gang, I have an older presario 2000, running XP home SP3. I have 768 mb of ram. recently when i go for hibernate mode it takes up to 5 - 10 or more minutes to finish shutting down. i've recently defragged, run MBAM full scan, Symantic full scan. no major bugs or malware found. Wondering why it would take so long to engage hibernation mode. it used to just pop over in under a minute. I usually use it if i'm coming back to the laptop in an hour or two instead of shutting down, but I do shut down almost daily. Real headscratcher, hoping someone has an idea or two.
Thanks.

Hibernation, copies your present working condition to hard disk before going into the deepest of power saving sleeps,could be that something change ,more programs running than before ,build up of temp file /temp internet files /java cache file ,maybe .
i use ccleaner and or ATF Cleaner ,ATF cleaner is easier and user friendly to use ,just click ckeckall and run the cleaner .download it from major geeks ,click on the download from majorgeek under download locations .good luck

Caperjac,
thanks for the link to the cleaners. They helped a little bit, but it still lags quite a bit. Im thinking it may be too many services running and too long for Windows to terminate them. Trying a couple of different system tweak programs to see if I can clean out the back end, since the start up is moving fine.
Thanks,
Pete
