Windows Hibernate - Interesting feature

When i restored my gear with a new Intel DG41CN motherboard and Transcent 2GB DDR2, i found an interesting problem with my Windows 7 boot screen. My CMOS battery was screwed up in the brand new board, and upon system boot, it gave me a CMOS Battery failure, event log screen.

On my last usage 6 months, ago i had hibernated the system. Now, the time is reset to factory default 01/01/2009 00:00:00. When i tired to restore my system from hibernation, it gave me a checksum error and deleted that partition to start from first again.

My conclusion, Windows 7 (or may earlier) checks the hibernate page file with the system time, and last modification time, and only then boots. Have anyone else faced this problem (rather feature) of Windows 7?
