Comment (by mcs):

 I forgot to mention that to test this you can add a line like the
 following to your torrc:
  DormantClientTimeout 600
 This will cause tor to enter dormant mode after 10 minutes with no client-
 initiated network activity (this is the minimum allowed setting). If you
 are watching, you will see a message like the following when the
 transition to dormant mode occurs:
  Apr xx xx:00:00.000 [notice] No user activity in a long time: becoming
 Then you can exit and restart Tor Browser and make sure tor leaves dormant
 mode (it will be obvious if it does not, because bootstrapping progress
 will stay at 0%).
