Thank you for posting the information. We will look into the issue.
Does your system have the latest BIOS and have you checked with your computer manufacturer for a solution? The connection you have is built into your system board, so the bug might be system specific. You might need help from the manufacturer to find a solution.
this is a dell dimension 9200 system with latest bios and latest windows 7 updates.
i usually load the latest drivers from the chip/hardware manufacture (intel, nvidia, ati etc.) itself because i experienced better performance/stability/features than with system manufactures (i.e dell) or microsoft drivers. hibernation was working like a charm with win 7 64bit for months until i updated the intel network driver (i suppose i had the microsoft driver until i recently installed the intel driver for the nic).
however in this case it isn't working properly - at least not with hibernation.
i hope you guys @intel can fix the problem with the new upcoming driver.
so far i will stick with the microsoft one. (i made sure that it is the intel driver because i switched and installed the microsoft and intel driver several times with reboots and trying to hibernate!)
