    Hi,

    how can I put my MBP into hibernation without changing the default action when the lid is closed ? I want that it sleeps when the lid is closed but I want to use the hibernation also.


    Thanks,
    Tex

    ^ do you mean you want to have normal sleep mode as well as hibernation? if so thats what happens by default.

    if not have a careful read of the first Macworld link in Eidorian's post. it explains everything.

    How ?
    When I close the lid, the MBP sleeps, that is ok. I also want to be able to put it to hibernation (via a menu or something) to save battery if I don't use it for a longer period.

    Thanks,
    Tex

    i misunderstood your question. you can use a Hibernation widget or manually set the sleep mode each time with Terminal commands.

    Thanks for the link to the hibernation widget. Will definitely be using that, although I really don't remember the last time I hibernated my old laptop. The power drain while using standby was never really that bad

    probably because your MacBook has more RAM, these days its 2 GB standard.
