Hibernation of Windows and Polarion

By Timothy Stroebele

When you run Polarion for a while and want to hibernate your computer, sometimes you get the message “Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API”. This is typical the case on computers where you develop customizations for Polarion. The problem will not occur on servers, since they will normally never hibernate.
This problem occurs because the Windows kernel power manager cannot obtain the memory resources that are required to prepare the computer to hibernate.
Polarion utilizes a lot of memory and the garbage collector gives it back to the operating system . Then the main memory gets cluttered and the hibernation fails. There is a hotfix available from Microsoft, which can be downloaded. Just look up the article “KB909095”.
