    I want to disable my Sleepimage file on my 8GB RAM MBA to save that disk space. The file is located in /var/vm folder but its hidden. Before running a Terminal command for this, I want to take a look into that folder.
    How do I get to it?

    Press command-shift-G in a Finder window and enter the address.

    Or, in the Terminal, before running your command:
    Code:
    $ ls /var/vm

    A convenient way to open a folder from the Terminal is by using 'open', like:

    PHP:
    open /var/vm
