    HORM and RoadRunner...

    I just configured EWF and enabled HORM (Hibernate once, resume many) function so that I can boot from the same hibernation file over and over again (I don't have to wait for hibernate shutdown which is extremely slow every time I get ready to turn my car off now)... Hibernation resume is soooooo much faster than a cold boot, so I like this...

    But, I don't want to always return to the same playlist/song location in RoadRunner that was saved with my hibernation 'save'... I have Roadrunner and winamp installed on a non EWF partition so is it possible to have RR "re-load" the playlist saved on the physical drive apon returning from hibernation. Does RR know it is returning from hibernation? If so then I don't think this will be a hard implementation, although I haven't looked at any of the source code.

    Like any windows APP, RR knows it's returning from Hibernation only when RR requests it.. I'd think for you the best option would be to stop the music and save your hibernation state like that.. so when opening it it will not start playing automatically... now, unless you use the "hibernate" option in RR, I find it hard to find a way to make it load the playlist from your phisical hard drive... maybe this will work IF you install winamp at your physical harddrive -- because RR always reads the playlist from there.. but it sill might need some adjustments.. like a "always reload" option.. or a "reloadlist" skin command.

    Hey... I use RR to initiate hibernation. So would it be possible to add an option to "always reload winamp playlist" on return from hibernation.

    That would be perfect, so that I can use HORM and not have to make a new hibernation save point each time I shut down, but RR still remembers what song was playing and the playlist (because this info is saved seperately on the non EWF drive)...

    I'm thinking this should be one or two lines of code at most, but I still haven't even gotten around to looking at the source. Plus I always hate working on the same source as somebody else and then two different versions are out there and having to deal with merging so I'll just leave it up to you for now

    I'll try to add this for next version.. All I have to do is add this line after the hibernate command: ReloadList = true
