3-8 Managing Power
Hibernation is a very useful feature. People frequently open many
applications when they use computers. It takes some time to get all these
applications open and running, and normally they all have to be closed
before the system can be turned off.
When you use the hibernation feature, you do not have to close the
applications. The computer stores the state of your computer to a file on
the hard disk and then shut down. The next time you turn on your
computer, you return to exactly where you left off.
