Hey guys

When ever i try to hibernate my system I get a blue screen error. I was told that it is because my Voodoo 3 doesnt support it. Is there a patch or something I can get to fix it.

Make sure you have the latest driver (1.04). Get it from http://3dfx.com or http://ReactorCritical.com

Hibernate is poorly supported by some cards and some mobos. Either it works or it doesn't.

Overall I've found hibernate to be very unreliable. Instead, I'd just set the monitor and hard drives to go to sleep after an hour or two. Those are your major power users, and the two things likely to wear out under continual use.

Doesn't hurt the computer to run all the time. All my computers are on all the time.
