Using Power Management

Changing the Statefile Location

When the system is suspended, a statefile is created by the Suspend-Resume software that preserves checkpoint information about that system at the time it was shut down. You can specify any UFS location for this statefile by editing the /etc/power.conf file to include an entry in this format:

statefile location

For location, provide the absolute path name of a local UFS file.

The size of the file created at this location depends on a variety of factors, including the size of the system's memory, the number of loadable drivers or modules in use, the number and type of processes running, and the amount of user memory that has been "locked down."
