Compaq LTE Hibernation Mode Incompatible with DoubleSpace (96755)

This information applies to both Microsoft DoubleSpace and Microsoft DriveSpace. For MS-DOS 6.22, use DRVSPACE in place of DBLSPACE for commands and filenames.


Compaq LTE machines have an option called "hibernation mode." This option writes all information in memory to drive C and then turns the power off to conserve battery power. When you turn on the computer on again, it automatically loads the information back into memory, rather than restarting MS-DOS.

If you have compressed drive C with DoubleSpace, the hibernation mode information is inaccessible when you restart the computer.


This occurs because the DoubleSpace drivers are not loaded when the computer tries to read in the information from the hibernation file.


To work around to this problem, disable the Compaq hibernation mode if your drive C is compressed. For information on disabling this feature, refer to your Compaq documentation.
