Quick tips for hibernating (in Windows XP):

Click 'Start', then' Turn Off Computer'. Hold the [Shift] key, and the 'Stand By' button will turn into a 'Hibernate' button.
or
If you're not using the 'Welcome screen', just select 'Hibernate' from the drop down menu in the dialog box that appears after you click 'Turn Off Computer'.

Thank you, but it seems not to work somehow. When I hold the shift key the 'Stand By' button won't turn into a 'Hibernate' button.
I'm running XP Pro.

If you followed all the instructions to go to the control panel power settings dialogue, and it still doesn't change (mine does and I'm in xp pro) then you'll have to go the task manager and click on the shut down menu.  It's the second option.

You need to enable the hibernate feature in the Power Control panel.

So, being a real thicko, does the hibernate option save the render todate (paused) or will it save concurrently?  Just wondering if it would be a method of getting round these pesky crashes.

Any chance of a fast-forward function?  ;D

The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.
