laptop sleep ecourages 'invasion'?
by bizgen - 10/10/10 12:03 AM
I turn my laptop on every morning (connected to power and with battery installed) and wnen I want to leave it for half an hour or more I put it into sleep mode. I find this is much quicker coming to life as hibernation takes as long as rebooting. I do this throughout the day. I turn it off if I am going out for several hours.
I have now been told this is dangerous and that someone with malicious intent could invade my setup because this is easier to do when in sleep mode.
Is there a real expert out there who can advise?
