SmartSleep is a preference pane that dynamically sets the sleep state of your machine. It's a successor to Hibernate.prefPane.

The Problem - Your MacBook or MacBook Pro knows the following sleep states:

  • sleep: machine will go to sleep only (saves state in RAM only, battery keeps RAM contents)
  • sleep and hibernate: machine sleeps and hibernates. (default)

  • Just sleep means that the notebook will go to sleep fast, but you loose the ability to change the battery as the battery is needed to
