[PLUG] Hibernation on a Sony VAIO

I just setup a dual boot on a Sony VAIO (WinXPpro/FC2) for a friend.
He uses quickbooks in his business, so win is still a requirement
until I figger out how to move him to an open source solution. Anyhow,
the real Q is how to get it to Hibernate. The win OS hibernates just
fine, and boots up quickly as a result. The FC2 just takes a long
time, which is _not_ gonna sell him on moving to it completely.

I know that several of you had these machines when I was regularly
attending meetings down there, so I'm assuming that somebody knows the
secret to getting this to work. And I'd really appreciate some

 If what is used as a Medium of exchange is fluctuating in its Value
 it is no better than unjust Weights and measures, both which are
 condemned by the laws of GOD and Man, and therefore the longest and
 most universal Custom could never make the Use of such a Medium either
 lawful or reasonable.
