10.4: Disable Safe Sleep for faster sleep on lid close

Just do the following

sudo strings /var/vm/sleepimage | grep LOGIN

This is not great.... obviously you would need root access or have sudo access as the file is only accessible by root. Still, it is not great to have your password unencrypted on disk even if it is only accessible via root.

Actually all you need is to boot it into target disk mode. And of course root password can be reset with Disk Utility. (I couldn't run strings on mine, it complained about lack of memory.)
