Hi, you've proably had this before - if you put your computer on 'sleep' instead of shutting down you have almost immediate access to what you were doing before you left it. You still need to enter your password but that only takes a second or two. Some say that 'sleep' shortens battery life on laptops but since your battery will still last 6 or 7 years you will probably have changed it by then.
