delete hiberfil

i have vista computer with a 50GB C: drive partition that is almost full. i would like to delete hiberfil.sys [3GB] to get some maneuvering room. i have tuned off hibernate everywhere i can find it in power options, but i still get 'file is in use' when i try to delete it. how do i tell windows to eliminate hibernate and thus release hiberfil.sys?

i am surprised that one has to resort to the command line to set something like this.
