Sleep Image after 2.0 update

I have a mid 2012 MBA 13",and I just updated it to 2.0 update yesterday,the problem is now eveytime I reboot,the sleep image comes back ,I had originally deleted that 8GB file,and set the mode to 0,now even though I have set it to 0,I delete the file and it comes back again,I have searched and found a few people experiencing the same issue-any clue guys ?

So far there seems to be no way to get rid of it, however there are some more or less acceptable ways to prevent that huge file from being created.
1. creating a zero size sleepimage file and making it immutable: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4492672?tstart=0
2. redirecting the sleepimage to /dev/null: http://www.laszlopusztai.net/2012/11...k-2012-update/ or http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost...6&postcount=84
I like the 1st option more but whatever...

garbor: just one minor glitch in your last command, it should be:
Code:
chflags uchg /private/var/vm/sleepimage

Actually I did this in root user so I didn't need to add sudo before my commands and take off the '-' of course (bad habit with Linux ^^). But yes don't forget to add sudo before typing your commands if you don't have rights
