You'll never guess what you can do once you steal a laptop, reflash the BIOS, and reboot it

"If you have a lot of RAM..."

Isn't that the silliest thing? That the OS mindlessly stores the entire RAM to disk. 16GB of RAM, fresh from cold boot, Hibernate = 16 GB file. Stoopid stoopid stoopid.

Keep in mind that it's the OS, as in Operating System. Apparently it doesn't know which parts of the RAM are in actual use and which are not.

More accurately, Microsoft can't be arsed to perform this function more efficiently. Lazy pigs.

I expect that they'll figure it out eventually.
