No, it does work
Authored by: clknight on Oct 18, '06 05:35:12PM

I agree--the "safe sleep" is present by default, and noticeable on my MacBook. If you put it to sleep there is a 30-60 second delay between when the screen turns off and when the HD spins down--during this you will notice the sleep LED comes on solid white but doesn't blink. I presume this is when the RAM gets written to disk.

One problem I've had, though--I've caused a kernel panic on several occasions by triggering the sudden motion sensor while it's writing RAM to disk. It's a little tricky--I close the lid, think it's asleep, drop it onto a pillow on the floor, and 8 hours later it's blazing hot and with the KP screen o' death visible on the non-backlit LCD. Anyone else ever done that?
