Boot Snooze combines the goodness of hibernation and rebooting (Download Squad)

Feb 4th 2010 10:33PM As the author of Boot Snooze, I can tell you that it writes exactly one registry entry in the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\Boot Snooze" key. This entry gets automatically deleted by Windows after it's ran, hence the "RunOnce". The application itself uses five or six megs of RAM and doesn't stay resident. Once it's done, it exits. You may think differently, but I hardly call that cluttering up the registry and being a resource hog.

In the latest version I just uploaded, I've added configurable delay timers for both before and after the reboot.
