Time to desktop came in at 67 seconds, this is quite a bit slower than previous Seagate drives, and more closely resembles that of a WD Drive.



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 Laptop Ultrathin is back to being neck in neck with other Seagate drives. At 6.8 seconds, it is quite a bit faster than any competing product from HGST or WD.
