Was working with a Medion Akoya i7

First I wasn't sure what that iFFS entry was in my BIOS until I detected this website http://blog.adios.tw/2012/10/funtoo-linux-and-intel-rapid-start.html which explains it pretty well.

The good thing about it is that it is working totally separate from the OS. The bad thing - if you change your RAM size you have to grow the partition!

I have tested it but it wasn't really quicker as normal hibernate and hibernating 8 Gig or more takes a while (~20 seconds). Booting the system from scratch is faster (~10 seconds). So I stick with suspend-to-ram (~1 sec) or just plain boot on SSD anyway.
