If your computer is NOT a laptop/notebook then you can stop Hibernate.
Hibernation, reserves disk space equal to your RAM.
The mysterious hiberfil.sys
Go to Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance, Power Options, Hibernate tab, and uncheck the Enable hibernation box.

My XP computer used to refuse to go into sleep mode. I Discovered that BioS was preventing sleep mode from enableing. If you happen to know what you are doing: Open BioS while the computer is booting. Most new computer's BioS screen is so fast you can barely react. Try the F2 or F1 key while the screen is still up. Should send you to BioS. Dig around and look for a tab that says 'Power' or something in that line. Under there most BioS's have a 'enable sleep mode' button. Switch it to ON or Enabled. Some BioS hide it under the cryptic button label as "S3 power settings". DON'T go in there! Many settings can mess your system there! Other wise, i ca't help you. NOTE: Do NOT change anything else in BioS! you system could fatally crash and not be able to be recovered.
