i haven't been having any issues, but after reading about how hibernate is necessary for fast boot to work, in brink's tutorial:
Hibernate - Enable or Disable - Windows 7 Help Forums
i was just curious since it sounds like they both are "connected" - i have always had hibernate turned off and thus i assumed that fast boot would have been off because of this setting. after looking at the registry entries to double-check though:HibernateEnabled; value data = 0 (which is what i expected since i had turned it off)
but, i was puzzled why the entry for fast boot is enabled?:HiberbootEnabled; value data = 1should i actually change the HiberbootEnabled value to 0, or is it even necessary? if hibernate is turned off, does windows maybe just ignore this value?
thanks for any help clearing up this bit of confusion for me. cheers!
