Of all the magnificent features of Windows 8, the very first one, which you will note is the booting time of the operating system. It is much better than that of Windows 7, which used to take a lot of time to even hibernate from full functioning. Compared to full booting from a completely shot off stage, Windows 7 takes only three quarter of a minute for waking up from hibernation and resuming the functionality. This was indeed dependant on the number of files and size of those files, which were running during hibernation. So think about the speed of Windows 8, which takes only lesser time than Windows 7.
Windows 8 support says that the operating system will take only close to 8 seconds. With windows 8, waking up from hibernation, should theoretically takes much lesser than the boot up time. However, there is a small problem in that it takes almost the same time if a number of huge files are opened at the time of hibernation, yet it is a bit faster than when booting under normal conditions.
Waking up from hibernation
Windows 8 support says that under whatever condition, be it with less number of files or with large number of (really huge) files, Windows 8 resumes
much faster than Windows 7. The speeds of the operating systems were compared on Core i5 notebooks. Windows 8 operating system shared the reading of the hibernation files and subsequent decompressing of the contents among the cores of the system. Hence, it was easy and quick when resuming from its sleep. According to techies, a full hibernation file is larger than a boot file of Windows. It will take the same time to load the saved services and drivers of a boot file and read and decompress the hibernate file.
If the Windows 8 beta version is taking too much time to hibernate or boot, it might be due to some components slowing down the system. The performance rates of the hardware components can be analyzed from the Windows Experience Index rates. The performance CPU, disk drive, and graphics card can be checked with the program. So, if some things are bothering the performance of the operating system, it might be a good idea to get it fixed asap!
