    -commitanddisable -live commits your changes right then and there, no restart needed. you need to restart in order to re-enable EWF after you give the -enable command.

    Does anyone knows if this works?
    I'm using a normal windows XP SP2 install and I'm only want to use HORM
    is this possible? I don't need to lockup my pc wit EWF etc..

I haven't checked yet, but I imagine that you can do it even without making the filesystem readonly since it's just the special version of NTLDR that does it. If that's the case then the frontend could always update a file with the last action (playing mp3, video, radio, etc.) and then on resume it should always read that file to see what it should load up. But that's up to the frontend developers.
    I'd love to be able to do this. I like having all the system info stored in memory (saving writes to the HD) but hate having to rebuild a playlist every time I get in the car. I remember someone working on a way to commit just a single file to a readonly partition. I tried installing my frontend on another partition that wasn't protected so the playlist file would be written. But it creates bad sectors on the drive anytime I try to write anything to the unprotected partition when EWF is enabled on the protected one. Why does this happen?

    Same HD two partitions.
    One protected, one not.
    Neither are writable when just one is readonly with EWF.

    If you happend to delete the file it simply wouldnt play.

    would puting computer into hibernation, just at the end of the last song, with random selected, select a random track each time computer is resumed?

    Sorry to go back a bit but why not using an actove 'no playing' playlist that the image points to. then this playlist will be modified all the time or when the PC shuts down but will not affect the image.

    There may be in issue if ti tries to resume at a time in a certain song but surely it will just skip to the next one if it having a bit of trouble.

    I guess those people doesn't have any shutdown controller. So they actually have to sit and wait till windows powers down b4 they can turn off the key and leave.

    Well.. this would be pretty simple to code (the front end).

    Save the playlist and program data somewhere else besides what is being hibernated...

    On resume from hibernation (WM_POWER) message, load that playlist.

    On a command to start hibernation... dump the playlist... so that it isn't loaded next time a resume from hibernation is detected.

    There you go... the program would work exactally as it would under normal hibernation.

    Is there anywhere where it is written down a play by play on how to do this? Sounds interesting, but not 100% sure on exactly what is going on.
