    Hibernate restore speed

    On my dell laptop with 256mb ram with a slowish HDD, windows restores from hibernate in under 3 seconds, my M1000 with 256mb DDR ram and a 7,200rpm HDD does it in about 8secs - why the discrepency? is the laptop doing something clever in hardware to achieve this? If i could afford to buy another laptop i'd fit the dell in the car - it has a lightning fast BIOS - from power button to mp3 is 6 secs flat - no joke

    what OS are you running on your dell laptop? What OS for the M1000? Sometimes OS makes a difference....

    have you tried installing win95 or win98 on a P4 system? It installs the OS like if it was installing IM...

    Is that from power on????? My M9000 takes about 10 seconds just to POST, then another 15 seconds or so to resume. 256Mb RAM here, too.

    Car changed for TVR Griffith 500, so computer de-installed. Using a Dension 100ix w/60Gb HD unit in the interim.

    yes check the difference in the post time (the part before the "resuming windows" thing comes up). Also could be due to difference in speed of RAM or the bus speed (resuming from hibernate means writing from hard drive to RAM) or also the difference in processor architecture may contribute, but I'm not sure how much the processor plays a part in resuming from hibernate, probably minimal.

    What about amount of ram !? I loaded my M10000 with a Gig, am I going to be penalized for that even if I didn't fill up the whole gig during the cession !?

    Yep, it will try to write/read 1gb of data to/from the hard drive.

    For you (and others who use suspend to RAM), how long do you find you can leave it in suspend mode before your car battery starts to suffer?
