Suggestion - Hibernate Applications

    General discussion

  • I think a great feature would be to add hibernation of apps.

     

    You know how it is, you've been working on something for hours and the wife's moaning at you to get in bed but you've got whatever you're working on in a specific layout and when you exit, the changes to the layout revert to default. Wouldn't it be great to close the program but keep everything as it is for when you next open it?

    Better still, if you're having to use a few apps at the same time and a couple of browser pages too, if you were able to "group" these then hibernate the group leaving a desktop shortcut that opens up your apps just as they were.

    Surely it would be simple enough to pull the program memory from ram and have it stored on the hard drive.

    What do you think?
