I am having a problem with Hibernating my Windows 7 PC. When ever I try to hibernate, the screen goes blank for a while, there's disk activity and then I am presented with the Login Screen.
I've tried enabling/disabling hibernation, not helped.
When I run
shutdown /h I get a error: "The system cannot find the file specified.(2)"
I've checked and "hiberfil.sys" does exist.
How can I get hibernation working again?
EDIT: Just ran
shutdown /h and monitored it with Process Monitor (something I should have done at the beginning) and the only file it cannot find is "C:\Windows\rescache\rc0008":
08:10:24.6198561 AM shutdown.exe 3684 CreateFile C:\Windows\rescache\rc0008 NAME NOT FOUND Desired Access: Read Attributes, Disposition: Open, Options: Open Reparse Point, Attributes: n/a, ShareMode: Read, Write, Delete, AllocationSize: n/a
I went to "C:\Windows\rescache" and saw:
rc0006 (Folder) rc0007 (Folder) ResCache.mni (File)
Now I tried just copying rc0007 and rename it to rc0008 but I get a access denied error (even when running as Administrator). Should I bother going into safe mode and copying and renaming rc0007 to rc0008. Will it help? Does this shed some light on the problem?
