10.4: Boot another OS while OS X is hibernating
Authored by: marco.trive on Mar 07, '07 10:17:40AM

I'm not aware of any consequence that booting another OS and then waking a Mac from deep sleep might cause.
Of course, partitions and important Mac OS X files must NOT be changed while under another OS.
(I don't have write access from Linux on hfs+)

My uptime has reached 35 days (vs 30 days of my friend's Windows XP) but then I had to reboot after installing a kernel extension.

BTW I don't think that I'll reboot again until Leopard comes out.

10.4: Boot another OS while OS X is hibernating

Uptime on OS X will be forever unless you reboot! I never crash, and until my SCSI card started preventing deep sleep, never shut my Mac down either.

I like rebooting though. Makes things run faster after having a dozen apps open all day. It also clears out a lot of temp and cache files.
