Questions and Answers :
New jobs start rather than resuming old ones after hybernation

I've recently installed BOINC and added the lhc@home project (along with Rosetta). I like to sleep quietly so my laptop goes into hibernation at a scheduled time. This morning I found that the jobs that were running yesterday are now set to waiting for memory while 3 new jobs started processing.
I've since set the job limit in preferences to 3 and the memory limit to 75% because my laptop had a BSOD with the 90% mem-limit (which resulted in 4 lhc and 1 rosetta).
Is there anything specific I can before hybernation to let it resume the running jobs? The hybernation is scheduled via a Powershell script so I can include other CLI commands easily.

Hello Dutch Power Cow Kees,
You are running CMS-tasks and these tasks and also ATLAS ones are not able to succeed with longer interruption.
Only Theory tasks and Sixtracks will succeed when they restart the next morning.
Before hybernation suspend the LHC project and don't keep the tasks in memory (BOINC setting)
and give them some time to write the running Theory tasks to disk.
