GLBasic User Manual

Main sections



The HIBERNATE command puts the program into a sleep mode until the user does something (moves the mouse, presses a key, touches the joystick, ...)
With this command CPU load can be reduced drastically . If you're writing a level editor for example where you don't have to update the display every frame for animations, putting a HIBERNATE command in your code will allow other programs to use the CPU while no work is required by your program.
Using this command offers laptops and pocketpc devices a longer battery lifetime.
