Thread: Disable hibernation ?

    Default Re: Disable hibernation ?

    I noticed, coming from hibernation is slower than rebooting the machine on a rotating disk, how much more
    compared to a SSD. That's why I don't use it.

    Yes, I hibernate for that reason: I get everything opened in the state I
    left them. It is not only boot time, but the time to start the desktop,
    and then all the applications.

    How so?

    Fully booting my big desktop machine takes several minutes. Restoring
    from hibernation takes about 30 seconds.

    Just measured it: restoring my laptop, from power off, bios check, boot,
    kernel loading all from swap, till full desktop with applications
    available: 30 seconds. And it is oldish, 2010, with a 5400 rpm hard disk.

    After I run an update on it I'll reboot it and measure.

    [...]

    Done. It takes a full minute to boot till login prompt. Then a further
    40" to get to the xfce desktop. About two minutes total, considering
    typing passwords and waits.

    Compared to 30" using hibernation, which gets me to the full desktops
    with opened applications...
