Most people use gen_server with hibernate in the return value from the callback (e.g., http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/gen_server.html#Module:handle_call-3). If you need something that is more complex, CloudI has a hibernate service configuration option that allows you to hibernate based on the incoming service request rate, so when the service request rate drops too low, the process hibernates whenever possible (http://cloudi.org/api.html#2_services_add_config_opts_hibernate).
