    I totally agree with this part. In any case, i hibernate because of speed,
    not because i need to save anything for tomorrow... i usually close all apps
    and then hibernate. I just hate to wait ages for booting, but i also hate
    the idea of my RAM being under power overnight because of standby. I bet
    most of the folks who hibernate have same reasons.

    I hear what you say S-Man and I'm not planning to argue. I would suggest
    that you look into exactly how much power there is to your RAM while in S3
    and whether that is harmful to your RAM or to any other part of your

    Personally, I only use standby. The only time I restart my computer is after
    installing software, and the only time I shut down is during a thunderstorm.
    No problems to report from using standby.

    I did just think of another reason someone might want to use hibernation: If
    you have a UPS that automatically closes open programs during an extended
    power outage and then shuts down your computer "gracefully" (as APCC likes
    to say) then you'll need to enable hibernation.

    Well, if you save all your work before, then it doesn't really matter much
    which option to use. Anyway, some PC's are on 24/7 and they are fine, it's
    just that feeling that RAM is always on....it's not power consumption. Maybe
    i'll give it a try and see. Anyway, Logitech does update drivers, so maybe
    now all will work like it should.

    Hey S-Man, are we talking laptop or desktop? I haven't used a laptop since
    1994, so I'm basing all my posts on how I use standby with my desktop. Could
    be that everything is different with a laptop. Sorry, I should have pointed
    that out earlier.

    Nope. We're talking about Desktop PC. I could understand if laptop is in
    question, then standby is the best solution for over-day use. But, when
    Desktop is in question, it's not an issue of power consumption, but speed of
    booting after press of start button...at least for me it is. There's nothing
    i hate more than waiting 2 minutes for a PC to be usefull...

    Ahh... fool..... you able to read this?

    If you had a fucking clue where to wipe your arse, you wouldn't be letting
    out so much shit!

    If Windows worked the way it is supposed to, we wouldn't need a firewall. If
    you cant figure that out, go back to newbies school and stop being a tool in

    .....people who don't have a clue usually DO laugh when faced with something
    they don't understand. So don't go looking at your arse. You cant understand
    shit by the look of it!

    The long and the short of it is you have no fucking clue, obviously don't
    work with computers and don't know shit from dice.

    It happens for many reasons, not the least of which is that the damned HD
    didnt swap pool sectors when the sector became damaged. Just operated on one
    like that yesterday. Some data lost because of it.

    I would say to you that you probably shouldnt be talking about things you
    dont understand but then you cant swim and you're over your head in the deep
    end of the gene pool! Your own mouth should be your undoing as you open it
    to emit vapours and drown on your own crap!

    Used Hibernate for 3 years.
    Twice it wouldn't restore, both times it booted up 'Normal'

    Don't worry about it.

    He's a fuckwit.

    For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down
    in words with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived
    it. There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which
    are not thoughts, and to which as yet I have found it absolutely
    impossible to adapt to language. These fancies arise in the soul, alas
    how rarely. Only at epochs of most intense tranquillity, when the
    bodily and mental health are in perfection. And at those weird points
    of time, where the confines of the waking world blend with the world of
    dreams. And so I captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem,
    is but a dream within a dream.

    Did I say that somewhere or are you incontinent and letting your thoughts
    piss out again?
