Laptop Won't Resume From Hibernate
Personal one, here.
My laptop (Win 7 Home Premium, FWIW) has recently taken to not resuming from hibernate. It turns on, puts up the "resuming Windows" text and pretty icon and then sits there for ever. If I turn it off and restart it, it boots just fine.
I recently put full-disk encryption on it with TrueCrypt, however the problem is more recent than that so I'm not sure they're related.
Any suggestions as to what is wrong with it?

That would also stop it booting from cold though, wouldn't it?

Okay, I'll take a look. I haven't updated any drivers manually, but it could be I did through Microsoft Update.

*bump* Any other thoughts from anyone as to what might be causing this?

Corrupted hybernation file, it's a long shot as I am sure that 7 writes a fresh one each time but have you tryed deleting the hyberfile.sys hybernation file before putting it into suspend. I have also found that certain drivers usually video can cause the wake up to fail, that and random services running in the background that are not written well and go nuts when resumed. I have one SNMP moniter program on my laptop once that caused this.
Anything in the event log about the failed resume?

any systray type programs that run in the background

Don't think it is a corrupt hibernation file, as it offers to delete this when I restart it.
System Tray apps are: TrueCrypt, Nokia Ovi Suite, Norton Internet Security, my Epson P50 printer and GMail notifier.
The only device connected is a mouse.
No driver updates that I'm aware of (certainly, I haven't run any manually and nor has Windows Update).
Event Viewer lists an entry that "The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: ASPI32" and that it can't load the crash dump driver, both a few minutes into a normal boot up. Nokia Ovi is very talkative in the Event Viewer, but none of them look like errors, just information.
Is it worth removing the drive encryption? The problem is newer than that, but it could be related I guess...
