    Hibernate causes problems - as you've found out. Instead of using hibernate I suggest you just set you display and hard drive to power down after a set period of inactivity. I guaranty you and your system will be much happier.

    Being a bit nerdy.. but why ever hibernate or shutdown a PC?
    I mean, dosn't it harm the electrons to be at a standstill? LOL

    Nope - lots of folks never shut down. But it does make sense to let those parts that will wear out over time have a rest. Thus the suggestion to power down the display and hd.
