the torpid or resting state in which some animals pass the winter
cessation from or slowing of activity during the winter; especially slowing of metabolism in some animals
the act of retiring into inactivity; "he emerged from his hibernation to make his first appearance in several years"
(hibernate) sleep during winter; "Bears must eat a lot of food before they hibernate in their caves"
(hibernate) be in an inactive or dormant state
(hibernating) dormant: in a condition of biological rest or suspended animation; "dormant buds"; "a hibernating bear"; "torpid frogs"
Hibernation is a state of inactivity and metabolic depression in animals, characterized by lower body temperature, slower breathing, and lower metabolic rate. Hibernating animals conserve food, especially during winter when food is short, tapping energy reserves, body fat, at a slow rate. ...
Hibernation is a feature of many computer operating systems where the contents of RAM are written to non-volatile storage such as a hard disk, as a file or on a separate partition, before powering off the computer. ...
(Hibernate (java)) Hibernate is an object-relational mapping (ORM) library for the Java language, providing a framework for mapping an object-oriented domain model to a traditional relational database. ...
A state of inactivity and metabolic depression in animals during winter; A standby state which conserves power without losing the contents of memory
(Hibernate) When an animal passes the cold seasons in deep sleep.
(hibernate) To spend the winter in a dormant condition (see estivate).
(Hibernate) Some lizards can place themselves in a state of regulated hypothermia, which conserves energy during winter months, and allows them to survive without food.
(Hibernate) The action of transitioning the machine into a no power state, in a way such that the current operating state can be restored in the future without a full initialization sequence.
(Hibernate) To be inactive during Winter. Many insects, most reptiles and amphibians, and some mammals hibernate.
(Hibernate) To remain in a state of inactivity.

(hibernate) A low-power state for a computer. Open documents are saved to the hard disk.
(hibernate) A term coined by Charles Darwin's grandfather (who was also a naturalist), to hibernate [from the Latin for "winter"] means to pass the winter in a state of quiescent sleep. See: DORMANT, ESTIVATE.
(hibernate) To pass a cold season in sleep or seclusion.
(hibernate) to drastically reduce bodily activity during prolonged cold weather (usually winter), usually by entering a period of dormancy in a shelter (noun = hibernation)
Sleeplike state with a depressed metabolic rate. Sometimes used to describe a project with low levels of activity.
Sleeplike stage in which an organism's metabolism is reduced to its lowest level.
State of being in which the animal lies in a near comatose state for the duration of the winter.
A state of greatly reduced activity and metabolism produced by the lowering of body temperature. It occurs in winter, enabling an animal to survive on stored fat reserves until spring.
