While playing with the power options, I configured the (is it still called
the "Start" menu?) power button to hibernate. When I clicked on it the
behavior was the same as Sleep, except key presses beeped and power
eventually turned off.
Why not a screen that says "Windows is hibernating...." with that colorful
Also, which one wins, Sleep or Hibernate in n minutes?
On the screen saver window, have an option to directly set Sleep/Hibernate
if on battery power. These things really go together.
