XP starts up automatically


I know that loads of people have problems getting their XP to start up properly. My problem is that it starts up impeccably but at a time of its choosing.

I use a Vaio laptop and am always on the move. Because I want to keep my current state and don't have the time to do a cold boot every time I want to use my machine I put it into 'hibernation' mode. This has always been very practical.

But now, after about 10 minutes of hibernation it comes out of hibernation with an error message something like "insufficient resources to complete the API". Bearing in mind that at this point my laptop is in its case, it then proceeds to get hotter and hotter as it is now ON. Having already melted one Vaio motherboard whilst it was sitting on a desktop I'm very concerned about melting another whilst it's in its case.

Does anybody have an idea what the problem is please? And what is the solution?

Thanks in advance.
Hi Andy, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies.

We'll need the exact error message it gives you in order to be of any help - do you think you can post it here, word-for-word?
Yeah, a problem indeed.

How much free space do you have on your machine? How much memory is installed?
