Turn it all off! You don't need (and don't want) hybernation on a server. If you need system restore, try reducing the amount of space it will use on C:, otherwise just turn it off (just make sure you have good backups).

Personally, I don't believe either of these (or shadow copy) is appropriate on the system volume. I always turn it all off.
