Can any MVP out there help this matters by possibly bringing this issue to
the attention of Microsoft XP development team? This issue is there for a
long time and does not seem to have any solution without various suggestion.

Please see this post for a summary of the problem.
http://www.ntwizards.net/2004/10/13/hibernate

In particular, I'm still running XP SP1 and hotfix (Q330909) does not help
even though it says it would. And, people running SP2 are also experiencing
the problems.

Thanks.
