Ender Wiggin in stasis in the Ender's Game film.

Stasis was a medically induced coma state often used by interstellar travelers. As Minister of Colonization, Hyrum Graff went into stasis for 10 months every year, to stay alive until the first colony ships arrived at their destinations.[1]

During starflight, if one did not want to endure the voyage awake, they could decide to go into stasis for the duration of the trip, to be reawoken as they arrived at the destination planet. Andrew and Valentine Wiggin used stasis invariably during their collective 3000-years of interstellar voyages.[2]
