My last computer had one of too many power breaks - the electricity popped, and eventually had my hard-drive corrupted (probably). After reading a few articles about hibernation, I'm yet to understand - Can my computer be damaged in case of a power break, while hibernated?
And on the same topic, is there a way to configure my UPS to gracefully shutdown the computer after a period of time that the power doesn't come back on? Is there a dedicated driver, or software, for each UPS that should have come with it?
And one last thing - I read an article about Shutting down after being idle. It does, however, force the programs to close, which leads me to the next logical question - forcing the programs to quit will leave all changes unsaved? Is there a way to gracefully shutdown the computer?
Turns out to be 3 questions. Will summarize them here for convenience:
- Can my computer be damaged in case of a power break, while hibernated?
- How can I configure my UPS to shutdown gracefully after a period of time?
- Is there a way to gracefully shutdown the computer?
