What are the functionalities of sleep and hibernate in computers? Which one is better if I wanted to only use a little electricity on my computer while I am not working on it. When in Hibernate mode, should the computer turn off and that I need to press the Power button again when I decide to use it again? Should it take a few seconds to turn on the computer from hibernate mode? Please help.
Hibernate and sleep functionalities in computer and better way to save electricity
In sleep function your system will be going into locked state and the display will be turned off. Depending on the model, you may either press the power button or or use the mouse pad to turn it back on. Your system will be locked, just enter password and logon. If the system is shutdown your work will be lost.
This is more power saving method than sleep function, but normally we use this function if we are moving out for a long time. In this your system will be turned off data the point you were doing will stored into the system memory until next restart. It takes the same time as you normally start your system
