Subject Hibernation
Author Paul Schmidt
As various species of animal settle down for a long winters nap,
naturally we think about computers, modern machines with power
management, that can also hibernate.

What happens if you open a transaction, then pack up for the day,
the machine is still running, it's set up so that in an hour it
hibernates. The transaction is still open.

Is there a way for gds32.dll to detect that the machine is about to
hibernate, so that the transaction can be terminated, either
committed or rolled back, so that it isn't held open for a long period
of time, suppose the user is off on vacation for 4 weeks, an OAT
that is 4 weeks old would not be a good idea.
