It sucks because I don't want to lose all my work when I walk away from my computer for a while, but I don't want it to be on all the time sucking power and shortening the life of my components. I'll probably just leave it on hibernate, it does the same thing but it takes like another 15-20 sec to boot up. I just wondered if anybody knew an easy fix I may have overlooked. The one other thing I don't like about hibernate is you can't tell if the computer is hibernating or shut off because all of the lights go out. I'm just nitpicking though, it's not a big deal.
