Resume normal computer activity by pressing the power button (the computer may take several seconds to return to normal operation).

When set to Save to Disk, the computer copies all system data to a reserved area on the hard-disk drive and then turns off all power to the computer. When the computer resumes normal operation, the same programs will be running and the same files will be open that were loaded before you activated this mode. Use save-to-disk suspend mode to conserve battery power or to preserve system data by quickly saving it to the hard-disk drive if you are about to run out of battery power.
