process control

I am interested to know whether a program or any command exist using which we can save the state of the process while shutting down the system and restart the process after the system starts to operate ,i.e a programme similar to nohup but allows the user to shutdown the system when they have executed their process half way and want to continue the execution after the system restarts .
example :
If i am running a computing program and after 30 MIN or so its required for me to shutdown the system ,then can i save the state of the process so that i don't need to restart the process and save the 30 MIn of computing time

    there seem to be some patches for the 2.4.xx kernel for enabling suspend-to-disk ... and if i'm not mistaken it's in 2.5 too. google for swsusp
