    From what I understand, there are no technical reasons, why neither snapspots nor hibernate works, when Parallel is used with a Boot Camp partition. Am I correct?

    It was merely disabled to prevent any problems, when a the user boots the Boot Camp partition directly or modifies important files while it was in the hibernate/snapshot state.

    Is there a workaround to this limitation? I don't boot my partition via Boot Camp and would be _very_ happy to regain the snapshot functionality in order to quit and restart parallels immediately without shutting down and booting Windows.

    Actually there are.
    In theory it is possible, I will try to clarify , is it internally classified, if not I will reply with more details

    Although your post suggested that you wouldn't reply, if the information is classified, I thought I'd ask if this is really the case or you simply didn't have the time to ask. I'm still very much interested in regaining some type of hibernation functionality for bootcamp-parallels installations.

    Thanks for your reply, I'm glad you accepted that suggestion!

    Does it imply, that it won't be added to Parallels 2.5 but only 3.0 or even only after that?

    Can I apply some kind of (registry) patch to enable it temporarily?

    Any news on the possibility of hibernating a boot camp partition when using it via parallels?
