Ein MacBook kann man in unterschiedlichen Stufen in den Ruhezustand versetzen.
Der Befehl hierzu auf der Kommandozeilenebene heisst:
pmset -a hibernatemode (number)
0 (quick): Default sleep behavior on most Apple computers. RAM is still powered on while sleeping. Wake up is fast. Safe sleep is disabled.
1 (deep): Hibernation behavior. System is totally shut down while sleeping. RAM contents are dumped to disk. Wake up is slow.
3 (safe): Default behavior on Powerbook HD and later computers. RAM is still powered on while sleeping. Wake up is fast. Safe sleep is enabled, so RAM contents are also dumped to disk before going to sleep.
5 (deep): Same as mode 1 for systems with encrypted virtual memory.
7 (safe): Same as mode 3 for systems with encrypted virtual memory.
