How to Hibernate Debian Woody?


Dear LQ users!

I have a Pentium MMX 233MHz home-server running Debian Woody 3.0 (kernel 2.4.33) and I want to get it hibernated somehow, because I have a lot of programs running (especially downloads), which always need to be restarted when I power off/reboot the computer. I've never dealed with hibernation under Linux, thus now I'm asking for your help.

It would be great if it could be worked out without reinstallation, dist. upgrade (to Sarge, etc.) or repartitioning the disk.

Waiting for your answer.
Thanks!

stringZ

P.S.: Please don't blame me for having created a new thread about hibernation, I know there's a lot, but I didn't find any which was woody-specific.

I am not sure what your problem is or what you want to achieve here. From a terminal do top and post the top few lines. You'll see X number of processes running Y number sleeping. If you don't want certain apps running then you can either stop them or stop them starting by editing the start script in /etc/init.d/. I am

Hi, thanks for your answer. My intention is not to simply stop the applications or "get them in sleep state" but to hibernate the computer like in Windows and save the memory to somewhere on the disk from which the system (at next boot) can restore itself to what it was upon hibernation.

You are still not clear in your intention. Your description indicates that it is a server. What are you trying to conserve or improve in performance? Linux automatically puts unused apps to sleep. Have you tried running top?

If you know about Windows Hibernation you know what I'm talking about. I want to put the COMPUTER (not the apps) in hibernation mode, which (at me) means that a snapshot of the RAM will be saved onto the disk (like at suspend to disk), so I can pull the AC plug out of the computer, can turn it off completely, because next time if I turn it on, it recognizes that it has been hibernated and continues the session was saved to the RAM. I can't explain more understandably, sorry.

Don't use MS software and haven't used it for about 5 years so have little idea of what you are talking about. Linux has always been configured for the server sector with little attention to desktop use. A server is generally left running fulltime and is never powered off except for maintenance. Have not seen any such feature for a Debian based system.
