    Yep, worked like a charm. Hiberfil.sys is gone. Now, when I reboot, will it be reformed? I haven't uninstalled ePower Management. Thanks, TheTae

    after disable hibernate support, create a hidden directory named hiberfil.sys.
    powercfg /h off
    mkdir c:\hiberfil.sys
    attrib +h +s c:\hiberfil.sys

    I did all of this, but everytime I reboot, it turns itself back on.

    all you have to do it right click on C: click on Disk Cleanup and choose to remove the hibernate file...if you hibernate your system it will come there again, else won't.

    Hi,

    I googled nearly the whole web, and today I found the answer myself.
    it works this way:

    run the command box by klicking "run as..." and typing cmd
    then you get a black window.

    there, type powercfg /h off
    with this command you shut down the hibernation-functionality und the hiberfil.sys is going to be deleted.
    then, open your root directory on the system drive, e.g. C:\ and create an empty txt-file, which has to be renamed to hiberfil.sys

    then, again in the command box, go to the path of your root directory (use "cd.." without the quotation marks and hit enter. repeat this until only "C:\>" is left)
    there you type: "attrib +R +S +H hiberfil.sys" (without the marks)
    and now the hiberfil.sys cannot be modified by the system itself.

    For me it runs perfectly. I have 2 gB ram, and i think it was useless given away memory.
    now, my hiberfil.sys ist at least 0 bytes large. And I have reowned the 2 gB of memory ;)

    obc :)
