barrympixI am assuming I can make an Ubuntu-MATE live USB and check the hibernate function out like that.  I just wanted to make sure there WAS a hibernate function first of all, and really wasn't sure if the live-USB would work if it did.00:02
masnell_Definitely can do hibernation00:03
masnell_Doubt if active on Live USB tho00:03
masnell_Hibernation AFAIK uses swap space to store RAM content, and live USB won't have access to such00:05
masnell_So ensure swap file/partition = or > system RAM for hibernation use00:06
barrympixI have another ?. I recall someone telling me that I could make a USB stick bigger than 64GB work as a portable OS and HDD that would work on pretty much any computer with a USB port and a decent amount of RAM.  How does one go about making a USB drive OS that will allow me to operate on an available computer, totally bypassing the HDD.00:09
barrympixI imagine that I would limit myself to 64-bit arch, and non-OS X and non-Linux machines.00:16
* barrympix checking breath00:21
* barrympix pacing about00:35
* barrympix walks out down the hall a bit to find the loo00:40
barrympixso no on the USB sized computer?00:48
masnell_Usb yes, hibernation no cos hibernation will not work between computers - hibernate on a 8gb ram machine will fail on a 4gb machine to restore00:59
masnell_Plus usb port / path will change between computers00:59
barrympixThat would be a truly robust OS that could hibernate 8GB and wake up to only 4GB.  Yes that would be a crash you could probably hear.  Hibernation aside, I would like to be able to bring my USB computer with me, to a brothers house for example, and move all his Microsoftness aside while I finish a paper, look up stuff on the internet.  Then shut do01:21
barrympixwn and leave his computer 100% as it was before I used it.  Let's just say I've been falsely accused of breaking stuff.01:21
barrympixHow would I go about creating this USB computer?01:22
barrympixI think I have found a reference - "USB Portable Ubuntu".  but no guidance.01:24
