@_xhr_ work laptop suspended to disk, because ram uses 25% of the battery before I turn it on in the morning (and it enables the encryption)
Personal? Just close the lid! That does ram+disk if it's on battery or just ram if it's on mains.
@_xhr_ I once had my macbook air suspend to ram every night for 3-4 months. Then it started doing visual glitches, which went away on a restart....
@_xhr_ Whats the benefit of suspend to RAM compared to shutdown? Its like paying money for having to wait 10 seconds less everyday?
@samurro Depending on the OS, suspend to RAM is much faster than a complete shutdown.
But I also like to shutdown my laptop after work.
@_xhr_ Laptop I suspend to RAM because I use it daily. Shut it down when I know I won't use it for days.
Also, my touchpad has often issues in Linux and won't work on every boot, that's one reason I dislike shutting down too, haha.
@karlos Oh, I know that feeling. When my corporate Windows boots in the morning I can easily get and drink 2 cups of coffee :)
@_xhr_ I have systemd hybrid suspend features, but the values for suspend to disk is 12h. Just in case, that I'll probably always have enough amount of battery left.
@_xhr_ I wonder how many of you think you're shutting it down when closing the lid.
I just find it strange that someone would shutdown their laptop.
Suspend to disk is fine for me since I use FDE.
@stemid I don't know but I guess some Laptop users might have that misconception.
In the end, suspend to disk is also a complete shutdown except that you write your RAM's content on disk.
I personally also shut down my laptop for two reasons: (a) I can restore my working environment with a single keypress after login and (b) OpenBSD randomizes the kernel at each boot. With suspend2disk, one has to use the same kernel at each resume.
