    Hibernate means u are saving the current setting to the hard disk, which after a "time period", after when you again on the comp, the settings are loaded from the HDD. Here u will be logged on, itself when u again come back.

    bootvis....damn nice software man...reduced my bootup time from 24secs to 15/16secs flat!!!!!

    well hibernate nd standby r very much different!!
    in hibernate...

    the current state of the computer((contents of RAM)) is saved to disk, and the power to the computer is turned off. When u switch on the pc frm hibernation, it reads the data from the disk and restores the system to the state that it was in before it entered hibernation. All programs that were running are restarted((which were running at the time of entering hibernation))
    **u need to have ample free space on primary boot partition(c:) where RAM image can be created!

    in standby
    pc's state is saved to memory and most circuitry and devices are turned off. When resuming frm standby, the state is restored from memory and power is restored to all devices. If power fails during standby ur info is LOST!!..

    its like taking a small nap while travelling in bus((standby))....nd taking a nap at our office((hibernate))...hehe...will start work as soon as boss spots us!!!! :twisted: :twisted:
