    I didn't miss RH, I don't recommend it so I didn't list it. I wouldn't know about Linux and hibernation, never tried it

    In standby mode, the computer still requires power and just enters a "sleeping" state where all the data in the memory remains there, so it can instantly pop back up. But if the computer loses power, then the memory is wiped out, and the system has to do a full reboot when it regains power.

    In hibernation mode, the information in the memory is written to the hard disk, and when windows reboots, it simply reads that file back into memory, and you are quickly back to where you were. but the advantage of this is that you can cut off all power, and still resume windows pretty quickly.

    It is avalible in 2000 and I have not had any problems for the past two years .

    To activate it, right click on the desktop, clcik on screen saver, select the power button , clcik on hybernate tab and check on enable hybernate.

    I suppose a disadvantage could be that it still takes longer to restart than if in standby mode, (I use hibernation mode myself, and cannot wait for ME v.2 because it will support this) and I think it is available in 2000, but not sure

    Windows Me is not an option. I t was the biggest joke to come from Microsoft. Windows 98 is far more stable than Me. Ask any one in the computer industry.

    I started out by using 98lite (98se), but it caused to many problems when installing multimedia applications and such. 98Lite even in chubby mode removes essential files need any order to install or run basic applications. I decided to go to winXP because of its multimedia and upto date compatibilities.
    I would like to create a custom shell that runs off win98, but i'm not a high level programmer.

    >> Is anyone working on a custom shell? <<

    Do you know how long it would take a computer in hybernation or stand by to run out a battery?
