It does, and you can. Please don't post hearsay



For one I use it since always (win millenium, 2000, XP, Vista) and it works very well.

Hibernation turns off the computer, it's 100% lights-out, just as shut down. The difference is that it writes the content of the RAM on the hyberfil.sys file (usually on c and when it boots up it reads the file, writes into RAM and you pick up where you left off.

I do it because it's dang frustrating to wait until is shuts down...30 sec, reboots...30 sec, loads win until you can actually click something...another minute. With hibernation the shutdown time is the same, only the startup tine is 20 sec or thereabouts, boot included.

Moreover, you can OC, change FSB, memory timings, voltages, remove/add disk drives (except the boot drive of course) remove/add USB stick, change CPUs as long as they are from the same family (ex. X2 with another X2).
One thing you CAN NOT DO: remove/add RAM. Since it writes the contents of the ram on the HDD, it expets on boot up to have the quantity of ram equal with the size of the hyberfile.sys file.

Cheers!
Interesting. Proven Wrong. Well done, sir.

I believe I and many others have difficulty distinguishing between Standby and Hibernation.

I just reboot it. Takes me like 15 - 20 seconds to boot. No biggie.

It just boots as it would normally boot... Com'on mate, have you tried it? I had my rig disassembled, flown from Romania to France, put it back in another case, pushed the power button and it resumed exactly where it left off.

That and the fact I always use hibernation for my laptop and not once has it consumed something from the battery while on hibernation.

True... I repair laptops hear to win an extra buck and I always advice my customers to let me do a "trick" to speed up their boot times. I activate hibernation, set the "When push power button" to "Hibernate" and the client has suddenly a rig that can be turned off from the button (like a lamp really) and that boots up 5x faster.

It was actually the only reason I could find to install Windows ME over W98. Too bad savvy people are still tricked into not distinguishing between standby and hibernate... I have to say that with 4GB of ram it's beginning to take a while to shut down/boot up, but @2GB it makes a difference.

I probably have Hibernate confused with Sleep Mode then.
Once again...

So i am guessing the answer is then yes. But now knowing you can what advantages does it give you as opposed to just restarting the pc and changing your settings.

especially if your testing stuff out lets write a nice corrupted 2gb or ram to the HD.

Enlighten me what is the advantage of doing this
