Most of us either Hibernate our Windows computers or put it on Standby, thereby missing out on the sometimes beneficial advantages of the occasional reboot. Windows works better when it is completely shut down and then started up again, every once in a while. If you want to get the benefit of a restart yet not want to wait those few minutes for your Windows to boot up, you might want to check out Boot Snooze.
Reboot and Hibernate PC
Boot Snooze is a freeware app that reboots your Windows computer and then puts it in the Standby or Hibernate mode.
- Gives you a choice to reboot and go into standby or hibernation.
- It will then reboot your computer.
- After the reboot, a small dialog with a countdown timer will begin. The program allows you an up to 10-minute countdown.
- After the timer is up, your computer will be put into the mode you chose.
If you find this tool useful, you can download it from its home page.
Do note that for the Hibernate option to work, your computer must have hibernation enabled.
