I run a desktop system (Win7 SP1) and was thinking of deleting/immobilising the hibernation file, by using the cmd prompt and then entering (as administrator) powercfg /hibernate off. As I only use the desktop either off or on (or "log off") I feel I have no use as I do not have the desktop system going into hibernation mode.

 

Thoughts please?

 

Thanks in advance.

Point taken, thanks Platypus, as I am about to fit an SSD to my current computer and image the C drive to it.
