What is hibernation

of hibernate (English) - 1) to be in hibernation (about animals); to winter; to winter in warmer places, areas (about people);

Hibernation is the mode of power supply of the personal computer at which the current session of the user (all opened files and applications) remains on the hard drive (for this purpose in a disk C root: the hiberfil file is created. sys ; has the Hidden attributes , System ; 0,99 GB ), after this personal computer are powered off. When you come back to the interrupted work, the personal computer leaves the hibernation mode in only a few seconds (the inscription Renewal of Windows quickly appears), at the same time all files and applications which were opened before hibernation start are opened.

Notes

1. File of hibernation hiberfil. sys contains information on a condition of the personal computer at the time of an entrance to the hibernation mode.

2. At shutdown of the mode of hibernation the hiberfil file is removed. sys, at the same time in the Start-up menu disappears the option Hibernation .

3. At inclusion / shutdown of the mode of hibernation reset of the personal computer is not required.

4. Decide to use or not hibernation. If you do not grudge gigabyte of disk space and you want want to receive more conveniences during the work with Vista, then hibernation is your choice. The most important, in my opinion, property of hibernation is an efficiency of loading of OS - 15 - 20 seconds (i.e. applying hibernation, it is possible to get rid of such lack of Vista as long loading practically!) . The author of article uses hibernation instead of switching off of the laptop.

5. If you do not use hibernation, then it is better to turn off it - why to lose gigabyte of disk space?!

6. The hot keys for transition to the hibernation mode: a key with the Windows logo (or Ctrl + Esc) -> threefold pressing of the " key; Arrow to the right -> " key; (for the Russified Windows Vista Home Premium, for other versions other options are possible!) .

7. Files with which you worked before transition to the mode of hibernation can be not closed, but it is better to keep the made changes most, without hoping on uncle Bill !

8. It is the most reliable to pass into the hibernation mode via the Start-up button -> Hibernation (or click on a hibernation label - see above) since on laptops, - if your laptop works from the accumulator and it is ready for transition to hibernation when closing a cover, - sometimes when closing a cover there is no transition to the hibernation mode, and the laptop continues to work, discharging the accumulator ]
