STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 was enhanced to reduce the occurrence of this behavior.

Note It is still possible to experience a hibernation problem after you install this fix if the memory becomes highly fragmented. The speed at which this problem manifests is dependent on the software that you run and your particular usage model.
