No screen squishing since switching to Hibernation

Since I switched the Close Lid function to "Hibernation" instead of the default "Sleep" mode, I haven't had any of the occasional "screen squishing"! Hibernation is my favorite because usually when I had put the computer in sleep mode in the past, I was gone long enough that it went into hibernation out of its own free will. So why waste energy sleeping when you can hibernate? I only do a true power off every few days. I don't want the power off software not to get any exercise :-)

By the way, if you are interested in this computer, it is on sale this week at Circuit City for $500 after a $30 mail in rebate. But you can also take the Circuit City circular ad from the Sunday paper (or the Circuit City store) and ask your favorite store to price-match them. So even offer 110% price match so you can get it for slightly less. I think the rebate is from HP/Compaq, so it shouldn't be an issue in the price match since most retailers also advertise the $30 rebate.
