Is there a way, on windows 10 and on Linux distributions, to save the machine state before shutting down and load it back up on boot?
I.e. I would like the same feature as in VirtualBox when I use the "save state" to exit a running VM. Which means that when I open back that VM by loading the state, I still have everything just as I left it, and it doesn't take longer than a classical boot.
Is that possible for an OS (not virtualized)?
UPDATE: Of course I would like a real shutdown (does hibernation really shutdown the computer?) to be able to switch OS when booting back up. Use case is: I have a game running on windows, a browser, a bunch of stuff, I shutdown to do some dev on Linux. When I boot I choose Linux instead of Windows, it boots and loads its previous state back (my terminals, with tabs, docker containers still running, my IDE still running etc.). When I'm done with Linux, I shutdown (which saves the state etc.) and reboot under windows which loads back my game, browser etc.
On VirtualBox shutting down is really quick (<10s) and loading the state back up is fairly quick too (~20-40s). This is for a VM using 8GB of RAM. Is there a way to do that with native dual boot OSes and if so, is the speed ok?
