When he turned the tablet PC back on, all of the data he had entered that day was gone.

i.e., if the WinXP Tablet Edition service pack level is SP1 then you could be looking at an effect related to this bug:

"The ATAPI driver for Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) does not use 48-bit Logical Block Addressing (LBA) when it writes memory dump files or hibernation files. Additionally, the flush cache command is not issued to a large hard disk that has 48-bit LBA enabled when Windows XP enters standby or hibernation."
