Windows 7: Amazing! Game can be played after turned off

Amazing! Game can be played after turned off

Get this. Somebody turns my computer off while I have a high spec. game in the middle of the game (Empire:Total War). I come back to my computer, "aw bugger".
Turn on my computer and can carry on playing the game as if I never turned it off. I was in the middle of a battle!

Well done Microsoft, for the first time in 20 years I am truly impressed with a new version of Windows. Not only that, my experience index has gone up 15% from Vista 64 bit.

Regards

Neville

How you got there from the OP is what qualifies this as a Thread Of The Year contender.
