Fiddling with 7 will break it eventually. Leave services alone, and don't install themes. As to performance, the setting up 7 guide in my sig will spank 7 into shape.

Post yours!

Any will do, I'll start.

Menushowdelay = 1

Start > Regedit > HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Control Panel > Desktop

Find "MenuShowDelay"

Set it anywhere between 1 ~ 1000

Mine is at one, 0 was just way too darn fast.

Hello Gamepoint,

It's to change the amount of time it takes for a menu in Windows 7 to pop, fade, or slide open when you hover the mouse pointer over it.

Hi Nemix77, i own a laptop and i'm quite interrested in the Hybrid mode but actually doesn't see some serious thread about it...just need to understand it better how fonctionning really that Hybrid mode.

I'd like to punch the max power management saving without dumped Win7 and my battery.

Got 4gb Ram DDR3. I've already set my Hdd to write cache

Thanks! So you're not totally done, ain't you?

Here's a good article on Hybrid Sleep for Vista/7: What is Hybrid Sleep and Differences with Basic Sleep Mode in Vista My Digital Life

Hybrid Sleep is especially good for laptops, not only does it save more power in sleep mode but if your laptop were to run out of battery, get unplugged or suddenly loose power. You will feel safe to know that everything has been backed up onto the hard drive and Windows will resume where you left it when power is restored. This also applies for Desktops, when users do not want to shutdown and just put the computer to sleep. In the case of any power failures, nothing lost and no damage done to the OS.

Well, pretty interresting reading for me own use...I guess i'll will have to get on, that it takes a little longer to go on stanby mode due to this fact!

Thanks Nemix!

quoted:

"the notebook system will wake briefly from Standby (S3) and go into Hibernate (S4) mode so that the memory data is preserved and recoverable, and system no longer use any battery power."

Wonder how much time does it takes to save data before returning from S3 to S4?

Better not have in Standby mode in your pouch if waking up and fail to S4! It might overheat...I'll work around all this.

No big difference, normal standby time take about 5-10 seconds and 5 second wake up. Hybrid Sleep will take 10-20 seconds and 10 second wake up. Both normal standby and Hybrid Sleep standby/wake up time depends on how much ram you have installed. Hybird Sleep also depends on how fast your hard drive is becuase it writes to the hard drive, a faster hard drive will result in faster standby and wake up time.

Well, seems pretty correct to me...Got 4gb Ram and Sata Ahci enable writing enough fast.

I mean, when it will switch to hybrid mode, either i'm in bed or out!
