10.4: Disable Safe Sleep for faster sleep on lid close
Authored by: moxieboy on Mar 07, '07 01:47:45PM
If you want to temporarily kill Safe Sleep, try:

sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage

As others have pointed out, this is the image file. Deleting it won't cause any problems, and has the immediate effect of disabling Safe Sleep until reboot.

I find myself doing this occasionally to free up hard drive space. A temporary solution, I know, but it gives me an instant extra 2GB free.
