Warning on loading dump files

When you load your dump files via "svnadmin load", be sure to TURN OFF power management if you have Windows 7 or greater.

Apparently new and improved Windows will just go to sleep in the middle of a dump load. This process in our case takes 12 hours to run and I just lost a bunch of time since I ran it and went home :-( Apparently there is a new secret handshake that all apps have to know to tell Windows not to go to sleep. This is BS.
