[W8] Windows 8 to have restore to factory setting option and other features - Page 6

I used to put it to sleep, its really convenient simply having to put my hand on the keyboard to turn the computer instantly on. But for some reason it will randomly turn on after an hour or so.

Does anyone know what could be causing that?

Fair enough statement. I would imagine (but we all know what happens when you assume ) you'd be able to use something 'like' vlite to alter the restore image into what you'd want.

So unless its superior to my version of it, it's practically useless, you may as well just reinstall if you need to replace anything, especially considering Microsofts history of shoddy code on good features. (ReadyBoost, System Restore in ME, etc)
Would you be interested in sharing your methodoloogies? They sound really efficient. Particularly, I'd be interested in how the script works.

Update: The configuration on which Windows 8 took 8 min to install and Windows 7 took 23-25 min to install is 24G RAM, 2TB hard drive (certainly not the SSD) and 8-core processors, so it’s a comparison and Windows 8 would take much more time to install on a normal configuration.

Sounds like Windows SteadyState, actually. Only, it'll work with Windows 8, instead of being limited to XP and Vista.

While I don't use it now I'm in Linux it's just a fairly simple .bat script to copy a bunch of files from my 2TB (I adjust the E:\\, F:\\, etc accordingly) and run a .reg file that contains all the registry entries...Took about a full day to get them all too.

That's no way to make money. lol

Wish they'd remove the registry, and maybe write a better kernel. NT has been around for a while now.
