Usually people use the Hibernate or the Sleep Function when leaving the computer, to save time when returning to it. Mostly, I think, it’s because people feel the computer takes forever to get “work ready”. It may save you some precious time on the day-to-day basis, but there are occasions where a full Re-Boot is necessary. Especially if you have applied an update or installed a Windows Service Dependent program. – What Then ??
One solution is to reboot when you go to get some coffee (or some other legal “drug”), or when you leave for the day. If you are on a password protected system, this really doesn’t help you any – you still have to wait for that last boot up services to start after typing in your credentials. If this is your case – do I got the perfect solution for you:
