Whenever my laptop comes out of Hibernate or Stand By mode, I get this error: "System Error : Insufficient system resources exist to complete the API." What exactly does this mean? Thanks in advance!

Googling this problem comes up with a lot of people having the same problem but not any one solution. Oddly, it is experienced more when there is more than one Gig of memory.
Make sure that all programs are closed including Outlook before going into hibernate. Below is typical of what is found on the net:

This is a known issue with hibernation on systems with 1GB or more memory (2GB seems to be the pain threshold). The problem is caused by excessive memory fragmentation on the system. So, you would be less likely to see the problem shortly after booting up, but after starting up a few applications which use memory in a very fragmented manner, you might run into it. The kernel power managerís hibernation code cannot get allocate enough resources to build its internal data structures to handle the high number of distinct memory allocations that occur when memory gets badly fragmented. Sadly, the only possible (just possible) work around is to try re-booting the system, closing any apps that are open, etc. There is no fix for XP SP2 right now.

Check the above article. There is a hotfix that may work for you.

Added to what Buddy said...

Microsoft offers a hotfix. It references the problem when the laptop goes into hibernation, but may work with your issue as well. Check the article and see if it fits your situation.

Worth a try...

oops... sorry Buddy, we posted the kb article at the same time
