    You should just have to turn the computer back on. Part of the boot sequence will detect a magic number in the swap space and restore the session.

    It would help if you could tell us what actually happens when you turn your computer back on.

    Let us know how it goes,

    hibernate

    My understanding of hibernate is where you do a keystroke and the pc returns to it's previous state. If I have to use the power button then I could just shut it down normally. I may be confusing hibernate with a standby method as with my previous os win xp.

    On my laptop, hibernate writes the entire session to disk and the turns off the computer completely. Suspend stops everything but leaves the memory powered so it still uses power but comes back up almost instantly. (Standby doesn't seem to do anything but I've not checked that out yet)

    Both states will only come back by pressing the power button. I'm not sure how that compares to windows and there may be other options on other hardware. Anyone else care to comment?

    Hope that helps,

    Chris...
