Wow.  I had thought it was just  a different name for "Hibernate", which 
used to be an option in addition to sleep.

I was wondering why nothing was restored after a hard reboot.

I'm dual booting off a drive so nothing in memory is going to persist; I
need each OS to hibernate, not sleep or suspend or any other 
RAM-dependent behavior.

The absence of a reliable hibernate is a big deal to me so I'm 
considering gong back to 12.04.

(That plus a few other annoyances in 14.x)

The name "freeze" is an amazingly poor choice. I tried to Google for 
info, but "freeze" has a long history with a particular meaning for 
computers so I never found anything useful.

Thanks again,

James Britt
