Mac OS X As you have surely noticed by now, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs held his keynote speech yesterday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. So far, the responses have been mixed; I have seen a lot of excitement, but also a lot of disappointment. Personally, I am not really sure where I stand.

2. you can choose to "reboot into windows" from the finder, but rather than "shutting down" the OS, writes the ram contents to the drive, it's more of a safe sleep. that way when you boot back into OS X, everything is exactly like you left it.. very nice if you ask me

It's called hibernation and Macs can already do this.

They can indeed, but it's still quite new to them; it was only every publicly released late in 2005. Before then, it was partially implemented but never used. Even then, I think it only hibernated when power was low; it couldn't be forced (and was therefore only a iBook/PowerBook feature).

Check out Midnight

It's a dashboard widget that can actually put your mac into hibernation.
