Hibernate Command for Vista

With Vista, all efforts have been made that when you want to shutdown, the UX pushes you to a sleep state (S3).  That's evident by the single power button on the start menu that is wired to S3.

However, I'm a Hibernate kind of user.  I prefer to Hibernate whenever possible.

With the command line shutdown.exe command, they've added a new switch (along with a bunch of others) that allows a simple command to hibernate.

So, I've added to my desktop & quick launch a shortcut to the following command line:

shutdown /h

This puts the system into Hibernate with no questions asked.  No UAC, nothing.
