This isn't suspend/resume. This is I can't find my disks, and I am just
waiting for them to appear.

call it what you will... suspended animation? I been doing PTFs on the
hosting and let me tell you... this is fantastic. Not having to take all
the hosted partitions down and not having to recover them after the
hosting IPLs for the fourth time today! I need to change my shorts! <lol>

I know that it don't work this way on Power 6 with 6.1.

Wellllllllll it didn't truly Hibernate the partitions they actually just
stood frozen until their disks came back!! This has been around for a
while. I've had customers lose power to towers or turn off power to disk
units and the O/S simply sits there until the disks return and then off
it goes!

Definitely a GOOD thing!

Didn't believe my eyes! I IPL'd it again... same result! Hibernation!

When did that happen?
