    I have noticed that when my XP machine goes into hibernation, I lose connection to a number of drives (E, F, G, H). I retain C and D(cd drive). In order to get back the drives I have to restart the machine. If I understand hibernation correctly, it is to save power. So is it disconnecting the drives to save power or do I have some sort of problem?

    How much free space do you have on your Primary drive? Hibernation takes up a lot of HD space.
    Also, how much RAM do you have installed?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Are they internal or external?

    When you look at the controller for these disks in Device Manager do you see a Power Management tab?
    If so then try disabling the option to turn off power for the device (attached screenshot is from a Network card, not all devices will have this tab)

    1.) Many hibernation issues are machine specific. What is the make & model of the PC?
    2.) Is XP up-to-date with patches?
    3.) What XP service pack level is installed?
    4.) Have you reviewed How to troubleshoot hibernation and standby issues in Windows XP?

    It is a Lenovo with a AMD Sempron Processor. All patches are up-to-date. Service pack 3. Will take a look at the site.
    Thanks.
