user interface for suspend/resume with TuxOnIce
The user interface for TuxOnIce, TuxOnIce-UserUI, is a separate program that runs in userspace - it does not exist in the kernel. This allows for greater flexibility in the user interface, and less potential for fatal issues to arise in kernel-space. TuxOnIce-UserUI is an optional component of TuxOnIce, however, it can make your hibernation experience much more enjoyable. Having TuxOnIce-UserUI allows you to interact with the hibernation process as it happens. This mean you can press Escape to cancel a hibernation or resuming, press R to toggle rebooting at the end of hibernating, change the verbosity level to see what's going on, etc.
