I've not been asked to turn on a laptop yet -- and with the new "checkpoint friendly" bags TSA: "Checkpoint Friendly" Laptop Bag Procedures you would have to remove the laptop to turn it on.

Excellent, thanks for that! Guess I'll be fine with my mini sleeping then

Ever since I got my 10v, I have been using sleep when passing through TSA. I went through a couple of times during the holiday season while sleeping and a glowing light. Not once have I had a problem with sleeping computers through TSA for as long as I can remember. I'm guessing that msingh is just afraid of TSA, which is what TSA wants out of travelers.

Default Hibernate? - 01-22-2010, 05:39 AM

I've owned laptops for at least 10 years, including macs. I travel around, give presentations, do development on the plane, show people my photo collection, all the usual laptoppy type stuff. I have never once used hibernation. I've never even felt the need. About a year ago I discovered you could hibernate a MacOS X machine. When I discover new features I didn't know about I like to use them. But I couldn't see any use for hibernation that wasn't covered by sleeping. So I forgot about it until reading this today.

The moral, of course, is that we all find different ways to use our laptops.

Oh, and I've never had a problem on a plane.

I find that OSX boots faster from off than my PC does from sleep. Its not a big deal to me.

Just went through TSA with 1) MacBookPro (sleeping), 2) Dell Mini 9 (sleeping), and 3) Dell Mini 10V (sleeping), all in one carry-on bag. The only eyebrows raised by TSA were, "Why 3 computers?" and get this, "Put each one in a separate bin." But, there is no maximum computer carry-on rule. No need to put them in a one-quart plastic container, either!

No hibernation. No problem. Most of us would like it to work flawlessly, but as evidenced by the vote, it doesn't seem to be a deal-breaker.
