Comment: Sleep / Hibernate (Score 1) 975

by saikatguha266 (#17189136) Attached to: Why Do Computers Take So Long to Boot Up?
You have just described the concept behind hibernate (suspend to disk) and sleep (suspend to memory).
I have not "booted up" in over 6 months now; I updated my kernel 6 months ago.
The time from opening the lid to being able to use it is under 5 seconds.
There should be no reason why the same can't be done for desktops.
