Re: active connections when hibernating

What do you mean by "Hibernating"?

Any process will need to be running in order to close connections;
otherwise, the kernel has to at least track that "This connection has
been closed by the other side, but not yet acknowledged as closed by
this side.".

connections even if it was hibernating? It's not used as OP or anything
else, just a plain OR. Also the restart freed approx. 200M RAM.
