Windows XP 64 cannot Hibernate

Just to stop you wasting your time trying to find out how to do this: Windows XP-64 does not allow hibernation.

Well, actually the precise rule is Windows XP-64 does not allow hibernation with more than 4GB of memory.But I figure if you've not got more than 4GB memory, you are probably better of using 32-bit in most cases.

As far as I can tell, this is true for Vista, but since don't use (and won't use) any instance of that execrable mess, I can't say. Thankfully, I can say hibernation does work for Windows 7, as I'm writing this missing on a Windows 7 64-bit (with 12GB ram) that does hibernate quite nicely.

Here are some links that explain it all:
