I have a scenario: I am downloading something through a program which when closed will start-over the entire download progress should I restart it. A situation happening in a desktop with the possibility of losing power in raid.

Windows (perhaps the rest as well) has power-saving modes, should one need to proceed with own work without losing the current session. Hybrid sleep is among such modes, it preserves the RAM contents (state) alive; as well as backup image to the hard-disk, should the system lose power.

In my scenario, I don't wanna go for power-saving mode. With just the same technology of saving the state to the hard-disk (as a snapshot) while proceeding with normal operations.

Just for clarification: is there a program or utility that behaves as much as the hibernation but without shutting down or power-saving; so that in-case of sudden power loss, I will restore from a ~"hibernation" (virtual) checkpoints?
