Good morning, James. How are you feeling?
Jim Preston: Wait. What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's perfectly normal to feel confused. You just spent 120 years in suspended animation.
Jim Preston: What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's okay, James.
Jim Preston: It's Jim.
Wake-up Hologram: Jim.
If nobody is awake on the ship, it wouldn't be likely to have the lights, instruments, video screens, etc. all powered up for a hundred years, rather than keep them shut down as well. In fact, just keeping oxygen in the interior of the ship would unnecessarily cause things to deteriorate over that time, it would be much more preferable to just pressurize the ship with plain nitrogen, which is pretty inert, and add the oxygen when people awake.
