I was wandering recently, could SWAP be periodically updated with the data from RAM?
To my understanding, the way hibernation works is:
- Push all data from RAM onto a SWAP partition that is on the Hard Disk
- Shut off PC
- When booting again, pull all data from SWAP into RAM
Couldn't you then also be able to repeat the 1. step periodically(like every 30-45 minutes), and then (in case of a crash) simply reboot the PC and have it naturally continue from the SWAP like it would in step 3.
If not: why so?
If yes: links and explanations plz.
P.S. If you know of the technology but not how it works, don't sweat it. I think I could manage if I knew where to start.
