The main difference between Sleep & Hibernation is that of “power-saving”.

A person must make his computer on sleep whenever he is sure that he will use his computer back again in a little while. When you make your computer to go into sleep, what basically happens is that your running applications and documents etc are put into memory while drawing a small amount of power.

Hibernation on the other hand is a much better mode when it comes to the power consumption because hibernation uses least amount of power when compared to Sleep & other states. Your data and work etc everything is kept safe while going for this option too.

I would prefer you to go for Hibernation as your work would be kept safe as well as your electricity bills would be cut down.

Sleep mode, this option is like turning your computer off, but leaves an amount of resources active for a quick resume and you don’t have to exit applications. Waking up the computer by pressing the power button is very fast. Use Sleep mode if you want to leave your computer for a few hours.

Hibernation mode, this option is much like Sleep mode, but saves more power over a longer duration and has a slower wake up time than Sleep mode. Hibernation uses less energy than Sleep mode by saving the computer’s memory to the hard drive and shutting down power to more resources.
 
Hibernation is slower to wake up from than Sleep mode by a few seconds and takes a moderate amount of energy more to wake up. Use Hibernation mode when leaving the computer for longer than a few hours.
 
Hope this helps.
