  • Ram and hibernation

    So, obviously the less ram you have, the faster your Hibernate times are gonna be.

    but here's my question.
    Does Ram speed matter when it comes to Hibernation. Will a PC3200 outperform a PC2700 in boot-up times?...
    and by how much? (guestimates accepted)
    mobo $130 ; 150wOpus-$200 ; 256mb pc2700 -$10 ; 120gb HDD 7200-$70 ; Lilliput TS 7"-$265 ; USB LAN-Free AR ; Rikaline 6010 GPS-$34 ; ShuttleXpress-$37
    Total = $746....Carputer = Priceless

      Any memory is going to be faster than the transfer speed of a HD.
      So I'd say that the write speed of the HDD is going to be the bottle neck, along with the amount of memory to write.

          I don't think less ram hibernates faster. It's a matter of how much ram is in use. I had a 512 stick, but only 180megs being used. My hibernate was taking too long for my system, so i switched it for a 256 stick. It made no difference at all.

            Hibernate will take up the ammount of ram, weather it is filled up or not, and the size of the swap file. So the less tham the better for fast boot, esp. since you don't have to check all of it.

              Agreed it takes up the same amount of space as ram. But I think that the space is just reserved for the hibersys file. I don't think it actually writes the full 512mb of ram during hibernation.
              That the only explanation I can come up with for it notting hibernating any faster when the amount of ram is halfed.
              Remember, my system wasn't using more than 256 in the first place. This would obviously not apply if more than 256mb of ram was actually being used in the 512 stick scenario.

                I highly doubt it will write the whole 512 Mbytes if you have that much ram. It takes a couple of minutes to write a file that big.

                  Exactly. Try getting a faster hard drive if you want faster speeds.

                    like how much improvement would a faster hardrive give me in general?

                      I have an SATA HD and it takes about 10 - 11 seconds to come out of hibernate.
