I've got the following problem with my old WinXP machine (1.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD):
After a wakeup from hibernation, the HD goes crazy for at least a minute. It's especially bad if the computer was hibernated for a long time. The guilty processes are "System" with a Page Fault Delta of at least 3000 and constant I/O Delta at about 100 and "csrss.exe" with similar values. (I know this doesn't sound too impressive; the highest PF Delta I've seen is about 80.000 after a fresh boot, but it's enough to stop practically everything else).
Is this really necessary? Can I remedy the condition?
