XP machines can hibernate, just the same as others, but it isn't available from the default Shut Down dialog. You can enable it easily though, by holding down the SHIFT key while the "Turn off computer" box is visible. PEEK-A-BOO!! :)

Yeah, that's great Dave, but fortunately, or unfortunately, there are still ppl who are just starting out on XP (maybe this is even their first computer!), and so i decided to post that little tip to be helpful. After all, isn't that what this forum is for? Or is it just for experts?...I don't think so. You may know it all, but most other ppl don't, and that includes me. Don't take offence, but that was a bit of a silly comment.

Daviesbad04, not everyone knows these things. This forum/site was created to pass along information such as this. I am sure there are many XP users who did not know about this tip.

Good tip, keep it up.

I tried it once, amazing how it keeps your net connections live unlike standby. But, I'm with EP, except mine is always on.

My point exactly....new users/not so new users.....we all need reminding about these tiny tips sometimes. i know that all the time I was using W2K, there were many little things that I forgot about. :)

thx for the support ppl..you know who you are. Negative remarks like that could scare off some people from making useful contributions. :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
