I know about the lock screen feature but I was wondering if "suspense state" function was going to be added. I like how fast XP boots up with that Hibernate feature, I wish FC2 had it. I prefer to use linux overall though.

I don't think you could expect Fedora to boot so quickly even you even hibranate.
Because Linux have to load some kernel modules & programs while booting the PC.
If you realy want to reduce the booting time you can use the following command
serviceconf
You can disable Unneeded Services/Daemons, but be careful some times you will disable a service that you required.
For more information try http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-fc2.shtml

The "hibernate" functionality in Linux is known as "software suspend", "suspend to disk" or "S4". This is a feature of the ACPI spec, and the Linux kernel does support it. More information can be found here: swsusp.sf.net.

It requires some work on your part. I have read somewhere that people have got it to work properly in FC2. However it is known to be a little bit buggy.

Software suspend huh? Cool thanks. I didn't know that's what it was called.
