Time to desktop came in at 65 seconds, and as with most WD drives we have in our charts, at the higher-end of the scale.
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 WD Slim came in at 7.723 seconds. This gives the Slim the honor of being the quickest WD drive we have tested as of late and it actually puts a little pressure on competing products from Seagate.
