Windows XP hibernation takes an extremely long time, ten minutes or longer, to get to full hibernation. What is up? What can I do? I'm using a Toshiba M200 Tablet PC with 1GB of RAM. Everything was fine when I received it used off eBay. Since then, I've reimaged the HDD and then resized the HDD from 60 gb to 25 gb. I don't know if this is when the problem started, but it seems a likely candidate.

From all your posts, I am sure that you have got tonnes of programs running in the back ground. goto to task manager and in the processes tab, how much memory is being used? I am pretty sure the size is pretty big! During hibernation, all the programs running on your system is serialized into your hard drive, so if the size is big, it will take a very long time....

yeah it is a big problem in Laptops. reason for this is because Your RAM has larger size so program during hibernation time go to Harddisk swap space from RAM which in your case is very high.because your laptop use larger RAM size so it takes longer time to hibernate.
