What is the benefit of Intel® Rapid Start Technology?
Intel® Rapid Start Technology provides minimal battery life drain when your system is in standby (sometimes called "Sleep") while still enabling you to resume very quickly when you wake the system back up to use it. It provides a great combination of battery life and quick resume response.
How does Intel Rapid Start Technology work?
How Intel® Rapid Start Technology works is dependent on PC manufacturer implementation. Typically a system enters the Intel Rapid Start Technology deep sleep state after a time in the normal Sleep mode provided in Windows*. For example, when using the recommended setting, the system transitions to Intel Rapid Start Technology after 60 minutes in Sleep. After the system has transitioned to the Intel Rapid Start Technology lower-power state, which saves battery life, it remains there until the user returns to the PC and resumes the system.
