Default Re: Win7 power management

After some observation (and a night of drinking) I have come to an interesting conclusion.

The "Resuming Windows" thinger only shows up after the computer has been in sleep mode for a long time (say, a night). Other than that, waking up the computer takes me straight to the login screen.

My hypothesis is that Win7 detects if the computer has been in standby mode for too long, and goes into hibernation.

Can anyone confirm this?
