XPMCE Missing performance monitor. Hibernator not working
Posted 16 April 2007 - 07:41 AM
The only solution given to date is to reload MCE.
I found this article, KB884558, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884558, that describes the situation exactly (I was fooling with the page file when Hibernator stopped working). The problem is that you have to call Microsoft to get the patch to fix the problem. They havent released it to the general public.
Does anyone know where I can download, or otherwise get the hotfix that they refer to in the article?

To work around this problem, configure your Windows XP-based computer to use a paging file.

After Googling around I found this knowledgebase article from Microsoft, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/248993
Performance Object is not Displayed in Performance Monitor
It describes 2 methods of re-enabling the necessary performance monitors needed by Hibernator.
I Googled and downloaded a program called exctrlst.exe. As described in the article, run this program and then find the PerfOS object and check the "enable" box. Thats all I had to do and Hibernator is a happy camper once again, and so am I.
The second method described in the article is basically doing the same thing except doing it manually in the registry. I didnt do it so I can't vouch for it.
