Hi folks, thanks for joining me in another edition of the EDESON ONLINE TUTORIALS series. In this edition, I am highlighting the importance of computer hibernation. Hibernation in computing is powering down a computer while retaining its state. Upon resumption, the computer is exactly as it was before entering hibernation. It also means avoiding the burden of saving unsaved data before shutting down and restoring all running programs after powering back on.
Most laptops go on automated hibernation when the battery is low but you can hibernate if you want to attend to urgent need and continue your work thereafter.
As we know, it is a bit difficult to shut down the computer all the time when we are on important work. Hibernate is similar to shutting down the computer. It saves the context in the hard drive and as soon as the computer is on, it loads the data from hard drive to the RAM.
Imagine you are uploading about 900MB video to Youtube using Glo network which is very slow, and at the same time you don’t have steady power supply. It can take you up to two days to upload.
If your battery is going down, instead of shutting down your laptop when the upload is about 50% or any percentage, HIBERNATE the laptop so that when you switch it on again the upload will start from where it stopped provided you are connected to the internet.
This will save you time of starting the upload all over after shutting down.
The above instance of uploading big video size also applies to installation of software, saving of heavy powerpoint or video files after production. No matter what you are doing, just hibernate. It will continue from where it stopped.
THANK YOU FOR READING.
