Windows More news on Windows 8. This time around, Gabe Aul, a director of program management in Windows, blogged about the changes Microsoft has made to Windows 8's boot process. The results are impressive - a boot time not much slower than waking from sleep on current Windows 7 and Mac OS X machines. This is, of course, a vital component of getting Windows NT ready for tablets.

Why does everybody seem to think that startup times are the only reason to use hibernate? I only care about resuming sessions where I left them.

I don't need my session to resume, so I forgot to mention it, but I certainly agree that it can be a valid reason.

Just leave your computer running, don't shutdown OR hibernate. You get instant-resume and your 'session' is just as you left it.

I have to laugh and non-laptop sleep and hibernate aficionados. Overcomplicating things, much?

Brilliant! How come nobody has ever figured that out?

Are you the kind of person who leaves their car running so that they feel comfortable in it when the time to commute has come? I'm not. And I guess nobody sane would suggest that.
