If there's a hibernate file on the drive, it'll always try to resume from that. But hibernate doesn't work on the Mini. To remove the message and save a few gigs on your drive, do the following at a terminal:
sudo pmset hibernatemode 0
sudo rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage

Thanks guy's both of the above posters do awesome work, now the only time i've seen this message is after doing my install to my runcore i wanted to see if i did it right so i swapped out my stock ssd and put in the runcore and it booted fine (here is what i did not do) i did not run the dellefi because it was just a test to see if i did it right. So im still waiting for the ice blue mini to get here to be complete and if i do get this message i'll do what chazz suggested, THANK'S....

Ice Blue 32gb ssd 2gb ram OSX .3mp camera....

I "fixed" the problem by running DellEFI again and removing the Hibernate.

Default Permanantly stop sleepimage - 05-21-2009, 09:43 AM

I have found that these methods don't completely stop the creation of a RAM sized sleepimage file. I am not sure if it is all the time but I have the file recreated on shutdown sometimes.

To stop it happening completely set the sleepimage file to /dev/null

$ sudo pmset hibernatefile /dev/null

Even if the system tries to create the file now it will be written to nowhere.
