comment How has it suddenly become so much faster to wake OS X from “safe sleep”?
Further evidence that I'm not really entering safe sleep: yesterday my battery was at ~26% when it went to sleep, and had discharged to 5% by the time it woke. In safe sleep, with power entirely removed, the battery should barely discharge at all (same as when shutdown). I haven't tested to see what happens if the battery discharges entirely, but I have a hunch it won't be able to restore but will boot anew.

comment Difference between autopoweroff and standby in pmset
When talking about energy waste, please multiply your numbers by the number of laptops on the planet. Also, perhaps I'm missing something but why would anything use power "when off"?

comment How do Apple engineers reset EFI password on new MacBooks?
@oemb1905: Interesting approach, but I'm pretty sure that Apple engineers don't replace the EFI chip—so not really an answer to this question.

comment How can OS X perform “VPN Single Sign On”?
I really don't see how Kerberos answers this question, at all.

comment How can OS X perform “VPN Single Sign On”?
Unless I'm very much mistaken, this solution requires the user first to login successfully on the remote machine and then a VPN connection will be established? However, the whole "raison-d'être" behind single sign on was to handle scenarios where the user does not have valid credentials on the remote machine, but can instead authenticate against the corporate directory server—but only after a VPN connection is established. So I don't see how any solution that only initiates the connection after login has been authenticated can possible suffice.

comment How can OS X perform “VPN Single Sign On”?
I'm sorry, but this answer is terrible. Per the question title, I want to achieve SINGLE SIGN ON. Having to manually sign in to VPN is the antithesis of what I'm after. Irrespective, this solution requires the user to have an account on the computer into which they are signing in, which again is not the scenario here.

My current thinking is that I probably need a PAM module to start the VPN connection, before any attempt is made to authenticate the user in Open Directory. I would imagine such a module already exists... but where?

@klanomath: Open Directory. Does that make a difference?
