    So there's this article about making your MBP sleep faster with "sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0" command

    It basically keeps RAM content on RAM chip instead writing to disk. So you can move the laptop around faster (not wait for sleepimage to be written)

    Is there any way i can enable this in Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit bootcamp mode?

    Windows used to always defaults to this way I believe. All you have to do is disable hybrid sleep in the power settings.
    Windows knows the same modes it just calls them differently.

    "Sleep" is RAM sleep and "Hybernate" is HD hybernate on Windows. Pretty obvious! :p

    Once your battery runs dry both OS X and Windows will use Hybernate (unless it's turned off) to keep your data from getting lost out of RAM. They will even wake up your laptop from sleep to do that.

    uh, so sleep is hibernatemode 0 and hibernate is hibernatemode 3? (saves RAM to disk)

    The common names are "Suspend-to-RAM" and "Suspend-to-DISC", but I guess yes, what you said. ;)

    Nope, just click START -> then on the arrow right to SHUT DOWN and choose either Sleep or Hybernate from the menu. In power-options you can also setup any of these to be the default action for the SHUT DOWN button (which will change name accordingly). And you can setup after what idle time sleep or hybernate should kick in.
