Macbook Hibernation

Mostly for my own reference, since someone asked me recently and I didn't remember :-P

To mess with the hibernation / sleep settings on the macbook, you have to manually change your power management options using pmset.

To force hibernation instead of sleep, use the following command:
% sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 1

To switch back, just set hibernatemode to 0 instead, and you should be set.
