In Power Option, I tried to enable Hinebation, but in vain.
A message says;You can not access the file that is used by other program.
I can not find the program.
Is there any other method for hibenation?

If you have a program constantly running in the background I don't think you can hibernate.

Hibernation doesn't work well with desktops anyway. What service pack do you have installed with WinXP?

Why do you want to use hibernation anyway? Just shut down the monitor.

How to disable and re-enable hibernation on a computer that is running Windows

Re: Cannot enable hibernation

Your main chipset drivers must have been installed.

XP doesn't have the drivers built in for most things that first came out after XP was first released, circa 2001, and it doesn't have some of the drivers built in for things made before that.

Whenever you load Windows from a regular Windows CD (or DVD) from scratch, after Setup is finished you must load the drivers for the mboard, particularly the main chipset drivers, in order for Windows to have the proper drivers for and information about your mboard hardware, including it's AGP or PCI-E, ACPI, USB 2.0 if it has it, and hard drive controller support. If you have a generic system and have the CD that came with the mboard, all the necessary drivers are on it. If you load drivers from the web, brand name system builders and mboard makers often DO NOT have the main chipset drivers listed in the downloads for your model - in that case you must go to the maker of the main chipset's web site, get the drivers, and load them.
