so your saying cause it went into like? a stanby mode, or my screen went black, i moved the mouse and it went on again, it showed the process can be finished as i know from previous experiances in windows the hdd turns off not being used, what if the HDD was turned off due the standby, would that make the process finish instantly due not knowing whats going on?
