But isn't laptop's bios supposed to handle it itself?
When I bought the laptop, I went to Dell's site, downloaded a bootable
diskette image with utilities to create/remove hybernate partition,
created one and that was it.
When you turn the power on, BIOS detects a hybernated netbsd in that
special partition and restores it instead of booting.
