Hibernate&Suspend questions

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – So I've never used either hibernate or suspend and have been reading up on it as I am upgrading all my stuff and wanna try either/both but have some questions first I understand that hibernate is mostly for desktop pc's and writes the save to disk and shutsdown and suspend is more for lappy's and holds the save in ram is that right? 1) how do you get out of hibernate/suspend? just use the power button? 2) can either one "harm" my pc in any way? I have many distros and install a few all the time so I always have to change /etc/fstab settings for swap as some distros format it no m (HowTos)
