I think most people hibernate or suspend when they go to sleep.

Have you ever considered how much text can fit in eighty columns?  Given that a
signature typically contains up to four lines of text, this space allows you to
attach a tremendous amount of valuable information to your messages.  Seize the
opportunity and don't waste your signature on bullshit that nobody cares about.

Since hibernate has been broken for the last three releases of Fedora, I do suspend to RAM. I wish hibernate worked though. Either way, I don't like rebooting and I think something like this would be great. Most the people I do know, even non-techies, generally either suspend or hibernate the machine since they don't want to wait for the system to start up.
