DeepSleep will allow your Mac laptop or desktop to sleep without using any power or drain the batteries. It saves everything to disk and stops using power completely. When you wake up your machines by pressing the power button, DeepSleep will restore everything and wake up just like you left it. It takes a little longer than normal sleep but it is a great battery saver when you know you won't be using the computer for a while. Give it a try, you will love the convenience and the extra battery life!

App works fine with my Mac but I decided not to use it because of the 27GB sleepimage file it has the system create. Problem is it still creates the sleepimage file even though app is deleted and I ran the following commands:
sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.axoniclabs.DeepSleepCmd.plist
sudo rm /var/run/com.axoniclabs.DeepSleep.socket
sudo rm /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.axoniclabs.DeepSleepCmd.plist
sudo rm /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.axoniclabs.DeepSleepCmd

Any idea how to fix this and reclaim the precious space on my SSD?

This feature is indeed missing in Lion. The reopening of the previously open applications after shutdown is a partial solution, but it takes some time. I checked it a few times now and it looks OK, after a week of stable use I'll pay the reasonable fee. One request - can the application dismount all external drive before hibernation ? This will help if I'll hibernate my MacBook Pro, and then more it to another location (I don't want to wake it up, dismount, and hibernate it again).

Yes, it's always connected to an outlet. However, it's on 24/7 and putting it to sleep or hibernation saves me some electricity and time waiting for shutdowns and restarts.

I didn't know this functionality existed until I fell asleep watching a movie on my bed and the next morning noticed the computer could recover from the total battery drain. I don't know I could control this functionality until this widget came along. Thanks for making it and thanks for making it free.

Apple should include access to this function in the UI.

This widget doesn't work at all on my brand new 17" PowerBook Pro. It just closes Dashboard and ...[nothing]. At least I didn't pay anything for it.

I tried version 1.2 on my iMac with Mac OS X 10.6.1 - the widget does nothing - when I click it Dashboard quits and this is it. Anyone with similar issue?

I'm having the same problem. The old version worked great under Leopard, but the new version just quits Dashboard and doesn't do anything. Does anyone have a solution?

What fixed the problem in my case was changing Mac OS X default language from Polish to English. But it's a workaround rather than a solution so I don't use the widget now. I use SuspendNow! instead and it works great.

Hmm, I'm running the English version already, so that probably won't help. :-) I downloaded a little applescript app called Hibernate and that seems to work too, but I was so used to using the DeepSleep widget. Hopefully there's a solution that doesn't involve switching languages :-)

I used this a couple times, and now my computer (13" MacBook Pro 2009) always goes to hibernation even when I do not hit the widget. How can I turn it back so my computer only goes into normal sleep when I close the lid?
