Personally I disassemble my laptop completely and ship the parts back to the factory each night and then in the morning have them shipped back at which time I rebuild the machine and reinstall the OS from scratch, compiling each and every package in the Debian and MX repositories from scratch.
Ship them? You don't drive them there and back in a Tesla :mad:

If it runs on MX software--I'm in.

A Windows comparison but for what it is worth.

the power usage is why windows 10 does a hybrid sleep these days. If win 10 suspends for long enough, it will switch to hibernate and power down.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Thanks! The machine I just removed Windows 10 on was painfully slow to boot.

Reminded me of Chromebooks which typically stay in sleep mode. I never shut the 3 Chromebooks down that we owned over about 5 years. They are based on a version of Gentoo Linux.

So that is why those course laptops I could use were so darned fast on startup and shutdown.

You don't fabricate your own chips from individually hand-selected fair trade artisanal sand grains? Poser! :p

SSD's also make the Chromebooks fast. The one Chromebook I still own and converted to a Linux machine only has 2gb ram but is still my fastest booting machine when it is powered off. Pretty much any computer with an SSD will be faster, but I like the larger SATA drives in general for all the storage.
