    I’m not sure my problem is the same, I get no crash error, it just freezes after a little while coming back from hibernation. I thought I’d try your solution anyway but it seems no matter what size I put in, the hiberfile won’t be set to more than 1877065728 bytes. I’m wondering if my problem is of a different nature or if this maximum size is preventing me from fixing the problem. Any comment on this would be appreciated.
    Best regards, Birgir S.

  2. Thank you. That fixed my problem. But it wasn’t crashing, it just wasn’t doing anything when i press hibernate button.

  3. Thanks men. This solved my problem but still another. After restart from hibernate i can’t connect to my wifi again. I must restart notebook to fix. Anyone know why?. Thanks for all.
