With the introduction of windows Vista, most of "Vista ready" laptops
comes with Vista Hotstart(TM) technology support.
You can read more about this:
Since Microsoft is making a lot of propaganda about this feature on Vista and
I own a HP dv6535ep laptop that supports it, I wrote a Linux driver and opened
a SF.net project to support these devices under linux.
The project is here: http://quickstart.sourceforge.net
With this driver and a simple init script its possible to launch applications
at boot time by pressing a hotkey while the laptop is either turned off
or in memory suspend.
With this email I'm proposing getting the driver into portage and creating a
Gentoo doc for this matter. I think people using Gentoo on Hotstart supported
devices could potentially benefit of this feature. Plus, the kernel driver is
very simple and looks stable in the last months.
