Thanks cowpod! I assume setting it to 1 (or whatever the initial value was) will reinstate S0?
I prefer having the control of S3 myself. Sometimes I know I’ll be using it in a couple of hours, and I like knowing that it’ll come on near instant when lifting the lid.
Now one thing that I do like about S0 is that, from what i’ve read, hibernating is better on the battery. Not just in the obvious way, but because I read that it is not good for a battery to constantly be in a state of discharge. By hibernating the battery is at rest.
But it is also a perception thing. When I sleep a computer, I don’t expect it to process anything until I’m back at the keyboard and asking it to do so. The idea that my laptop is going to listen to network activity and keep outlook up to date is not something I want or ever asked for. My smartphone is much better at that.
