I bought my sony vaio refurbished.  It didn't come with the necessary partition
to do the hibernation functions.  You need to create the partition.  But what
really need is the phdisk.exe utitlity on your disk images that you got from
Not only does the partition need to be the right size, it must be of the right
and then the utility tells the bios about the hibernation partition. Without all
of this
setup up propery it doesn't matter what keys you hit or apm -s.. it won't work.

But it should still suspend to dram nicely.
