here is a ssd tweak guide about half way down the page is the instructions on how to disable hibernate from command prompt...also take a look at what else the how to says there is some good tweaks for windows you should have done right away
Thanks so much for the quick and accurate reply! I hopped on that trusty old ol' command promt while SpaceSniffer was open... and I watched the big nastee "Hiber-box" disappear before my very eyes. What a liberating sight! I'm back to cruisin'.
And the SSD tips look downright esoteric almost... not the usual fluff we see floatin around the typical tech blog site. There are several I've not heard of. So double thanks!
