On my MacBook 1.1 with 1G of RAM and a 7200 RPM HDD using SafeSleepOnce • it only takes a few seconds to power off • roughly ten seconds to restore desktop from cold boot! • this is great because I can leave apps, docs etc open and still shut down and they'll be exactly as I left them when I turn the computer on again

This is an AppleScript. As such, it has its limitations and oddities. I have it running on macOS 10.12.6 Sierra. But it requires your Admin PW every time you use it, which gets annoying. Also, it's prone to going into Sit&Spin mode after you use it, requiring a Force Quit. For free, its OK, but quirky.

Press power button lightly to wake form sleep? ? Surely you're kidding. Press a bit too hard and you'll re-start. Yikes. Plus I got a message that USB devices have been disconnected because they're consuming too much power. Only happened since installing SafeSleepOnce. I;m on OS 10.10.5. Might be okay for some folks - certainly not for me.

I confirm, after a daily use for about one month I bet, that I'm a more than happy user of hibernate mode (and SafeSleepOnce ;-). I've discovered that hibernate mode is also very convenient as you can detach the power cord from the wall it will start just the same, combining in some way shut-down and sleep mode.

Working perfectly! And the ability to disable confirmation dialog in the prefs makes it a one click action (or a programmed shortcut). I launch it now instead of my usual shortcut for Shut-Down, so I still can access normal sleep and true shut-down when needed (via Apple menu or else). On my desktop computer it has 2 benefits: - never accidentally wakes up again - consumming less power than normal sleep (I'm ecologically concerned ;-) The longest wake-up time is not a problem for me. The allegations of people having problems are probably due to misconceptions or lack of patience! - First of all: the Hibernate mode is closer to Shut-Down mode than to Sleep! You won't wake your Mac up touching keyboard or mouse, you have to push the start button as in normal startup! - then your normal screen appears as blurred with a kind of progress bar, but this one seems blocked until it wakes up completely, so if you don't wait long enough, you may think it's crashed but it's not! - I believe that this and other utilities doing the same job are only GUIs for a normal Terminal command so it cannot crash or damage a sane computer For anyone interested, the Terminal commands are: - to check sleep mode : pmset -g | grep hibernatemode - to change it : sudo pmset -a hibernatemode x (where x=0, 1 or 2 ; normal sleep=0, hibernate=1) And a very important thing: check your available disk space before using!!! (in my case, the sleepimage file uses 4Gb, so I suppose it could be an issue if you don't have enough free space)

Computer never woke up.. it started to but remained stuck/frozen in the process, not sure why I tried this app. curiosity I guess. Had to "long-press-crash-it".. Maybe it works for some. In the trash for me.

Works great and I can have it in my Dock for quick access. I was using the similar widget for the dashboard, but this is more convenient and it doesn't require an administrator password at all, which is awesome. Thanks for this handy utility!
