Sleep- Default sleeping behaviour when you close the lid of your laptop. RAM is still on. Wakes up quickly

Deep sleep - Its like hibernation. System is totally shut down while sleeping. RAM contents are dumped to disk. Wake up is slow.

Sleep, Deep sleep, Safe sleep... So many options! Is there a Permanent Sleep option from which your mac does not wake up at all?

Yup. Wipe off Mac and load Windows. No chance of Mac waking up at all.

When the screen backlight is off, but the computer is not in actual sleep mode, this is when the Mac naps.

well, my earlier post got deleted because unaware of certain rules, i put a link to a torrent file for Snow Leopard download
now i have not included the link in this post
i dont think it should be very difficult for anyone to find Snow Leopard torrent
anyways, update: Snow Leopard is officially available in States for $29
will be available in India after two weeks for Rs. 1800/-
cheers

Yeah man happens, I am actually thinking of upgrading to a mbp or a macpro have put the macbook out for sale. I had a chance to fiddle around with the new mbp its really nice but doesn't draw myself to it like the macbook black did. Will be installing snow leopard tommorow and hopefully be submitting my first impressions over 10.6

UPDATE : Installed Snow Leopard and I'm loving it! Gained about 20ish GB of space after install. All the applications except InsomniaX and Nambu seem to work fine. Photoshop (which is a PowerPC) app seems to be working fine under software virtualization (I forgot what its called). It working out to be great and I definitely everyone here to upgrade. You can check out the features on the apple website.

Did you see a noticeable speed increase? This was one of the things promised by Apple.
