Hibernation?
Authored by: plbogart on Feb 17, '04 10:01:18PM

What's with the OSX Beta tally? Either it's a joke or a few people love playing with their system clock settings.

On a side note, what ever happened to the ability to hibernate OSX that I remember hearing about when Panther was in development? My "Oh, hell, it's a Dell" at work has this in XP and is usefull to have when I boot it up after a weekend. Starts Windoze right where I left off. Anything that minimizes the reloading of stuff at boot has my vote - especially on anything The Knighted One Of Redmond has gotten his fingers on.

Ah yes, but remember that Redmond's mantra is "Reboot early, reboot often." I power cycle every bloody chance I get -- prevents bsods.

Sort of the digital equivilent of flossing. Reboot to get rid of that unsightly Windows plaque build-up or your hard drive will eventually get gingavitas.

Why not sleep the unit and come back on Monday morning to a machine that's not only right where you left off, but just as zippy as it was when you left work previously.

We're not talking about XP here, where you need to reboot regularly to keep it happy.

I put both my G4 at home and the Dell at work to sleep during the week but I personally don't like leaving a system at work powered with no one there during the weekend - especially a Windows system. Hibernation is pretty much like "sleep mode" except that Hibernation will turn the power off until the next time the system is booted bringing everything back to the state it was at prior to hibernation or as if it had been woken from sleep.
