    Graphical activity screen/logo's

    Anny way we can get a screen that shows progress when hibertaning? Sometimes
    that takes forever (10+min). And with a blank screen, it is kinda hard to
    tell what's going on. Maybve I just like the little bar in xp...

    There seems to be an interesting lack of graphical prettys on the vista
    loading screen (the one with the xp style loading bar). One of those vista
    logos would go there nicely. It just bothers me for some reason.

    There is no way to show the progress for hibernating that I'm aware of?

    To change the boot screen do this:
    Press WINKEY+R, type msconfig and click OK.
    Click the Boot tab.
    Check the "No GUI boot" option.
    Apply/OK.

    This will replace the progress bar start-up screen with the default Vista
    background.

    If you get tired of this screen, you can use one of the many screens that
    are available on the internet.
