Try this. Even after disabling "SafeSleep" usiing the other hints in this thread, and then actually doing "sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage" or even "sudo tcsh; cat > /var/vm/sleeepimage ^D" everytime it seems that /var/vm/sleepimage comes back after a restart or shutdown! So....

sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage
sudo ln -s /dev/null /var/vm/sleepimage

Works so far (2007-06-30 19:17 EST)

in terminal, navigate to the /private/var/vm directory

Issue the following command:
sudo rm sleepimage

You'll be prompted for your password and it'll be deleted. If you get asked if you want to override the permission settings, just type "y" and hit return.

Good luck
