Great. My brand new Acer laptop won’t hibernate because it has over 1gb of RAM. The message I receive from Windows XP Pro SP2 when trying to hibernate is: “Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API”. After only a second or so of Googling that specific text, I found many blogs which mentioned and commented upon the issue. It seems that this is not related to any one laptop or manufacturer, but a bug (surprise, surprise) in Windows XP. SP2 does not fix this issue, and the hotfix is vaguely mentioned but not offered for download via the following link:

The computer occasionally does not hibernate and you receive an “Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API” error message in Windows XP with Service Pack 2, in Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, or in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (KB 909095)

Basically, you’re gonna have to call Microsoft and wade through the support lines to get the link/e-mailed hotfix. Fun stuff. šŸ˜›
