Suspend or Sleep does use some power though, so it's a matter of deciding how that fits your lifestyle/needs.
- I earn my money with IT (programming, giving courses...). It is very important for me that I start the next day exactly where I left the day before.
- My lifestyle includes the pragma that we should save as much energy as possible around the globe, so I do not want to sleep in winter, I want to hibernate. Latin "hibernare" = "to survive the winter"
It's a deeper sleep, with pulse going down to zero beats per minute.
Thank you very much for all your comments. I am interested in improving your "product", just because it gives me something, and I want to give something back.
