Who knows?&nbsp; So don't ever drop your TP onto the ground (while hibern'd)
which eventually would cause data loss or permanent damages to the HD,
though TP is known for its toughness. <br>
Also if you have 256MB mem (quite standard today), you are
writing/reading the equal amount of data to/from the HD on each
hibern/restore.&nbsp; This will surely wear off HD faster.<br>

I don't use those kernels.  Stay off the kernel of the week.  Watch for
which kernel is stable.

I am currently using 2.4.21.  no corruption issues.
