The Hibernator. Freeware screensaver which promises to fix all those naff power management problems with Windows – and particularly Media Center – that plague us mortals. The cool thing is that you can set it to run a script on wake up, like for instance recording a program on resume. Which seems kind of useful, eh?
“The Hibernator” is installed as a screensaver. Its’ purpose, when activated, is to monitor CPU, Disk and Network activity for a user set period of time. Once that time has expired “The Hibernator” will check to see if the average CPU, Disk and Network utilisations are below a user set threshold. If they are then the machine is put into the suspend mode of your choice…For device drivers it is possible to use a utility called dumppo to stop and restart stubborn (non APM compliant) hardware, thereby allowing a system that could never hibernate and resume to work flawlessly, without the need to spend endless months and dollars trying to find a configuration that works.
