You just started downloading a large file before going to bed, hoping it will finish by the time you woke up. Imagine how you will feel when, after waking up, you find your Windows PC in standby mode? Here is another scenario. Suppose you just started uploading your home video on YouTube to share it with your friends and family members. As the process will take a while, you leave your PC to keep the upload process running. After a while you come back only to find your PC in standby mode instead of the uploaded message. You will be frustrated and wish you could control your PC and prevent Windows from entering standby mode, sleep mode or hibernate mode. Stand-Bye! is the application you may be looking for.
You want to startup Windows as quickly as possible the next time you start your computer. After all no one wants to wait 3-4 minutes for Windows to completely boot and load all the components. Usually, if you keep your computer in Sleep mode or use the Hibernate feature, then you will notice faster computer boot up. But if you are constantly use this method and start Windows after keeping it into Sleep or Hibernate mode, you will notice that Windows slowly becomes sluggish.
Windows works better when it is completely shutdown and then started up again. If you reboot your computer once, you will find it again fast. This is because when you reboot Windows clears a lot of data from cache files, Windows also applies the pending updates, and programs and services that may have become non-responsive are stopped and then started again. If you want to get the benefits of a reboot and still start quickly out of a hibernation, then there is a little geeky tool to help you.
