Disable Safe Sleep on OS X

Are you the live fast, die young type? Put your Mac to sleep quicker by disabling Safe Sleep:

$ sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
$ sudo nvram "use-nvramrc?"=false
$ sudo rm -P /var/vm/sleepimage

If you change your mind:

$ sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3
$ sudo nvram "use-nvramrc?"=true

Update 3/22/08: I’ve started using SmartSleep instead of this hack. Check it out. It’s free.
