Surviving Hibernation?

Jun 8 at 10:26 PM
Is there any way in particular to pause the process of a particularly large data pull so that I could hibernate my laptop for a commute? I'm finding that if I wait for a rate limit pause, it never recovers once I reopen the laptop.

I haven't tried sleeping the laptop instead of hibernation, in complete transparency.

Fun note: It does seem to be far happier with sleep.
