Make sure to disable that "feature"....

Faster boot times due to hybrid hybernation starts make Win8 appealing for point of sale clients, but those are touch environments anyways and already served by a limited GUI. Mostly because the operator is already wearing a polyester hat.

But, make sure to disable that so called feature if using a setup where another OS needs access to the same file systems,  Otherwise, you may end up with file system corruption

Here's an article on the subject:

IOW, because Windows 8 is using a version of hibernate to speed up boot times, if you try to use another Operating System (Linux, Windows XP, Win 7, etc.)  to access data in the same partitions, you're going to risk file system corruption unless you disable the "features" included in Windows 8 that give you faster shutdown and boot up.
