Asus adds ‘Instant-On’ to latest netbooks

The latest Asus Zenbook UX31 has the ability to resume from sleep nearly instantly and now Asus is bringing the same feature to its Intel Atom-powered netbooks. The feature is available on the latest Eee PC 1025C and 1025CE and also adds a new sleep mode that allows an Eee PC netbook to resume from sleep in just 3 seconds. Asus says you should also get about 21 days of sleep time while using Instant On, so the sleep mode isn’t exactly a battery killer.
