    I know there's a way to turn off hibernate and stop this file from being
    created. I did a new install and now can't figure it out. I already have
    my power plan, advanced, sleep, never on all sleep options. I tried to
    manually delete the file and it won't let me. I don't think I had this
    problem before and don't know what's different this time around. I have
    admin privileges. There have been more than 1 funky things happened since
    the new install. It's almost like a different OS. I have admin rights, but
    sometimes it's as if I don't. I can't see for example a hidden folder in
    program data. I have selected for folder views to show hidden files and
    unchecked hide system files etc. I installed IconViewer which I used
    before. It worked great. It adds an extra tab to file properties named
    icons (If the file type has icons associated with it) and allows you to
    change it. I have installed, uninstalled, installed. It just doesn't work.
    It's a really basic program/add-on. Anyone, please help.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Hello Steve,

    This will help show you how to disable Hibernate through Disk Cleanup
    if this is what you needed.

    'Hibernation - Enable or Disable'
    (http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/165508-hibernation-enable-disable.html)

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
