This is something that we are reviewing to determine when we can support the functionality.Prasad supported this idea ·Prasad commented
This is a key feature that impedes movement from physical machines to Azure DevTest. I, and I know most of my colleagues are the same, that we don't really shut down our physical machines at the end of the day. Sometimes is can be 1 - 3 months (Windows has grown stable over the years!). Not having this ability is a real hindrance because I will be forced to shutdown the VM to save on running costs. Therefore in my opinion, it will drive the adoption of DevTest feature many times, if hibernation was implemented and it was quite fast at that.
