intel Rapid Start Technology - broken

I have a Dell Inspiron Model P25F with intel Rapid Start Technology software installed.
This computer had a 30 GB SSD and a 500 GB hard drive.

The ssd and hard drive are configured as RAID as per the requirements of intel Rapid Start Technology

The ssd has an 8 GB partition used to cache the RAM during hibernation and  29 GB is apparently unallocated.

The ssd should be caching files used to boot the machine.

The machine is not using the ssd during boot and hibernation.

I don't understand this technology so my question may not be clear.

Does anyone know how to trouble shoot intel Rapid Start Technology?

Thanks

start by looking in device manager for errors
any devices in error, or unknown ones?

did you create the hibernation partition?  It is most effective for resuming from sleep/hibernation

Yes I have seen the document that you are sending me to. The  the hibernation partition is in place. I'm not configuring the intel Rapid Start Technology it came installed and working on this computer. I'm trying to trouble shoot why it is no longer functioning as it should. All the BIOS and Windows configurations look OK.

nobus,  Your suggestion to look at the system log led to a discovery which indirectly led me to the solution I was seeking.

Thanks for the follow up.
