    Is there a way to add "Hibernate" to the Apple menu? It would write the RAM contents to the hard drive (just as it does in Safe Sleep) and then turn off.

    --Thanks.

    PS I know of programs such as Smart Sleep that will let you turn the sleep command into a hibernate option, but I don't want to get rid of normal sleep.

    Anything against using the Deep Sleep widget?

    Nothing against that at all, definitely an option, but would rather have it added to the Apple Menu.

    I don't think you can add it to the Apple menu, but you could write an AppleScript and save it to the AppleScript menu Item. The following command will make your Mac go straight to safe sleep.

    Code:
    pmset -a hibernatemode 1
    If you have "secure virtual memory" enabled then you need to enter 5 instead of 1. To change sleep back to normal then set hibernatemode to 3 (7 for secure VM). 0 turns off safe sleep all together.
