A computer in accordance with the invention includes volatile executable memory and non-volatile secondary storage. An operating system is stored on the secondary storage, and is loaded into executable memory during a computer boot process. The operating system includes a hibernate/awaken function that executes from the executable memory of the computer. The hibernate/awaken function saves the processor state and the executable memory state to the secondary storage prior to a computer power-down and subsequently restores the processor state and the executable memory state from the secondary storage after the computer power-down without rebooting the operating system.
