The different types of rest in OS X

The different modes supported by the operating system are

  • Mode 0. In this case, RAM is used at all times to store the content, hibernation is disabled and suspension is faster.
  • Mode 1. The contents of the RAM are passed to the hard disk and therefore no RAM is used to keep the system active.
  • Mode 3. This is the default mode.
  • Mode 5. Similar to the first mode with the exception of using the safe SWAP mode.
  • Mode 7. Similar to mode
  • 7 3 but with the difference of using the safe SWAP mode.

To activate any of these modes, you can test the hibernation speed, just use the command “sudo pmset -a hibernatemode X”, replacing the X with the mode you want to activate.
