    I think you're confusing hibernate with sleep. Hibernate shuts your computer down after storing the contents of your RAM to your hard drive. So of course the battery will be fine.

    Sleep uses battery power, so that would be a different story.

    ^Yes, shuts the computer off after storing the ram to disk. When you power up, you boot the OS, which then runs a recall routine. I'm not sure, but it's perhaps possible to program s4 states after hibernate to allow hardware wake-ups.. at the hardware level, that wouldn't be there when hitting s4 after a shutdown? Anyone know anything about that..?

    Anyway - hibernate actually works in Windows too nowadays. As in that it's not noticeably slower than a fresh boot, and doesn't consistently screw up page maps that had activity during shutdown :p So if it works for you, and you don't run a host of vb6 stuff that rely on absolute addresses to volatile ram being put in temp-files, or something like that -- it really shouldn't cause any issues.
