I'm pretty impressed with how much faster 8 comes back from hibernation than 7.  My system has 8 cores so that's probably why, given that restore from hibernate is now multi-threaded.  Seriously, it's gone from 25 seconds to 3.

Guess I'm making up time that people like JoshRoss are losing.  (and I bet you he probably spent more than 2.4 minutes writing that post)
