SMART-BURN is smart

This past weekend I was burning a DVD, and about halfway through I accidentally dropped something on the keyboard’s sleep button. The CPU fan obediently spun down and the monitor promptly switched off. Sigh. I reached for a new DVD blank and prepared to throw away the now-ruined one in the drive. Imagine my amazement when I woke up the computer, it resumed burning, and verification succeeded!

We’ve come a long way since 1996, when moving the cursor over the wrong part of the desktop would kill a burn.
