I don't think I'll ever be able to remember which of suspend and
hibernate means suspend-to-disk. Perhaps its easier for native English
speakers, or perhaps I need my brain fixed.


Hm, i've talked also with a few other folks here and maybe a short description would help a lot. Or do something like:

  Hibernate (suspend to memory)


  Suspend (suspend to harddisk)

although the later really looks wierd as suspend is used twice there. I'll try a few things and see what looks best, probably dicing up the description.

Read ya, Phil
