Hibernation / memory bug - a fix available!

It appears that Microsoft has a fix available for the hibernation / memory bug that keeps your system going into hibernation if you have more than 1gb of memory. The error that would normally pop up would be “Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API”. The computer would then lose the ability to go into hibernation until it was restarted. The fix applies to

Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, when used with:
  Microsoft Windows XP Professional
  Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005

Unfortunately, you have to call into Microsoft to get the fix or just wait for it to appear via Windows Update. I have not called in or applied the fix, but I’m very happy to finally see this appear. I’ll likely be doing so in the new couple of days and will report back what I find.

Thanks for the heads up, Wnewquay.
