Very Delayed 'Hibernate' with SP1

Computer: Dell Inspiron 1100, XP Home(SP1).

After downloading and installing latest Windows updates (as of 2/12/05), my computer takes a REALLY long annoying time to 'hibernate' once I start the process. It happens every time I try to hibernate now. Has anyone else seen this?

Unfortunately, I don't recall the names of the updates to provide more info. Perhaps they were optimized for SP2? (I refuse to install SP2 until major bugs are worked out).

Install SP2

I have been using it on all of my personal PCs and have installed it at work as well on the overwhelming majority of our PCs. However, don't use Windows Update to get it. I have yet to find someone who has not had a problem with it. Use this link to download the full blown version.
Warning!! This will take a while. Once downloaded, just run the executable and go have dinner, maybe even a movie. This part also takes a while.

you folks are funny... you just need to conceptionalize the fact of what exactly service pack updates are...... its absolutely MANDATORY its the completion of your operating system ... when we go to the store later down the road.. and see items that have "windows xp compatible" marked right on the packaging ... that statement is actually saying "the entire windows xp operating system including service packs.... that completes the operating system...
the bugs are gonna be worked out a lot faster if you cooperate and load the service pack 2 updates.. you will have less of a difficult time getting help for specific issues if you conform like the rest of the pc industry is.... Trust me... Good luck..
