program to hibernate the computer for a set time (from command line)
 
Is there a program I can install and run from the Command Line that will hibernate the computer (pausing all running programs (like my Minecraft server)), cutting power usage TO A BARE MINIMUM, and the un-hibernate after a set time?

The laptop this will be used on is SliTaz linux with the GUI disabled (unless i run startx)

well setting your computer to hibernate will save all of your running memory to disk so you can power off the pc and keep the session for later.


Your laptop doesn't take that much power. but you could setup a cron job to stop services when you don't need them. But again this will not save you much power.

This laptop is set up as a Minecraft server, and I want it to suspend operation and cut power usage for a set time... I can't kill the power because (afaik) it needs to automatically un-hibernate later.
