defragmenting. When you put your computer in hibernation,

the system. Then, when you turn your computer back on, the OS
Hiberfil.sys file to put everything back into memory, and the
resumes where it left off. However, Windows XP leaves the
file on the hard disk, even though it's no longer needed.
The Hiberfil.sys file, which can be very large, is a special
file that Disk Defragmenter cannot defragment. Therefore, the
of the Hiberfil.sys file will prevent Disk Defragmenter from
a thorough defragmenting operation.
Follow these steps to remove the Hiberfil.sys file from the hard
1. Access the Control Panel and double-click Power Options.
2. Select the Hibernate tab in the Power Options Properties

As soon as you clear the check box, Windows XP automatically
the Hiberfil.sys file from the hard disk. Once you complete the
operation, you can re-enable the Hibernation feature.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
