Hibernation and mount count

Postby _mg » 2009-12-18 10:23

Hi guys,
I noticed that after resuming from a 'pm-hibernate' the mount count for the fs does not icrease,
so my question is: is it safe to hibernate instead of shutting down?
I'm just concerned about fsck.

Thanks for your reply. :wink:

Assuming the hibernating procedure is reliable and functioning properly, it's safe.

It's a good idea to reboot every few days or so, and that will just delay the fsck.

It's probably possible to increase the fsck-rate, but I don't know at the moment how to do that....
