Above we see all of the drives on our chart, with the exception of the WD Green, begin to bunch together. We found the Desktop HDD .15 falling into second place with a 62 second boot time.



Resume from S4 Hibernation


Hibernation or S4 is part of the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface specification. In our custom "Resume from S4" testing, we allow the drive to enter hibernation for a period of ten minutes, from there we use our trusted stopwatch and time how long it takes for the drive to resume to a working desktop environment.




In our custom resume from S4 testing, the Desktop HDD .15 was quite impressive coming in at 6.9 seconds.
