People replying to my sig annoy me. That's why I change it all the time.
Does it help?
I have one really important thing to say right now. Whatever you do, make sure you never, ever try to >lostcarrier.
It said NO CARRIER after some random symbols. Are you sure you have ever been there?
Standby uses battery to continually refresh the memory. Hibernation dumps the memory to disk and powers down. There is no battery consumption save whatever is needed to run the clock.
I have a laptop with broken battery than only runs when plugged-in and strangely, hibernation only works when i keep it plugged-in. if i hibernate, unplug, move it to another room, plug-in again then somehow it has to fully reboot again.
Any given program will expand to fill available memory.
