Hi,
Many users use the hibernate feature instead of shutting down so they can start the computer faster next time, there a downside for this though: the computer will hardly ever get restarted, so it can't perform the usual startup checks and other stuff that keeps the OS healthy.
If others took the other rote and decided to shutdown the computer completely, the next start will be slower than a hibernate of course, but at least the OS will have a chance to reload, free memory..etc

So why not have both? When a user wants to shutdown his computer, the little program will kicks in: performing a restart instead, which will then be accompanied with a hibernate after the computer completely boots so the next boot will be 5 seconds away!

That's all, hopefully others will find this idea useful and it will not be me only. :P

Living Room / 32X32 icons in start menu
« on: October 26, 2007, 08:01 AM »
Hi,
My start menu is really messy, so I thought grouping programs by type in other menus would be very nice and easy to access, the only problem is that the original categories right after clicking all programs would have be very small with 16X16 icons, do I make any sense? :P, the question is: is there a hack that I can do to make them 32X32 icons? I have seen it in a screenshot so I think it's do-able.
