There's generally a timer that can be set to wake the system at the appropriate time. You'd set that timer, wake up at the appropriate time, and then power down. > > I rather like Jeremy's suggestion of hiding Hibernate behind a > modifier key. Isn't that what Windows does too?

Hiding menu items behind modifier keys is *really* undiscoverable; I think it should be avoided wherever possible. > > Now, whether hibernate works correctly or not is another question, but > I think we could further refine checks to make it more likely that it > will work if it's presented as a choice to the user. I think that reliability will be the determining factor in whether this is usable or not. This behaviour would be a win if I don't have to worry that hibernate's not going to work - or that my laptop's going to wake up in my backpack and then not shut down properly.
