I've been using a laptop for my Internet tasks for some time now, and I've grown quite fond of its "hibernate" ability. It is pretty much similar to shutting down the computer, except that I can turn it back on and my progress and windows will still be open. I'm wondering, would this method be a "valid" way of "saving" my progress on END? I'm hoping that this would be an alternative to the multi-hour sessions of Normal mode that I attempt.

Ah-uh-oh. If it works, then I guess it works. Technically, that would just be the same thing as never closing a window or turning your computer off, which I could only assume would be a way to save progress barring some sort of power outage.
So why wouldn't it work? The only problem I see is that you even are able to last that long in END.

If anyone could last that long, I'm sure Dragster'd be the one steppin' up to the plate. Yeee. I dance for joy if I can get past the ten min-o-mark

Well, my most recent highest score record for Normal mode (without Null/Omni) from last year did take me around the ballpark of a few hours to finish. I'm thinking that this time, I could slow down a little and thus make it less of a risk that I would do something careless and mess up. Also, now times have changed, and I no longer can readily afford several-hour chunks of playtime at once.

I just use the method of keeping the window open, as my laptop is almost always on.

In the span of time between the day I made this topic and now, my computer has managed to freeze up and crash twice. Twice I lost my END scores I was working on. First happened when I was up to about the 1600s. Second one came yesterday, when I had made turns into the 3300s (therefore actually surpassing my own record).
I'm too disheartened to try again, at least for a while.

Your loss is our gain!

Yeah, I guess that is a downfall to the hibernation tactic. My recommendation: start getting regular, less than thousand scores like the rest of us, jerk!
