I don't know about the difference hibernating and shutting down a PC. I, at least, know that shut down takes a lot of time and hibernation doesn't but what are the differences between hibernating and shutting down a PC? And I get the unhandled exception error while running .exe files after hibernation, what the meaning of this?

Hello,

Hibernation is the state of using the least power that can be possible. This mode is helpful for laptops. It’s totally different than shut down and working method is different.

When you hibernate your PC, all the data of your RAM is stored on the HDD and loads when it wakes up. While hibernating, the PC is almost turned off.

When you shut down your PC, it cleans the RAM, removes all the running processes and takes the machine to the total discontinued mode. No power is consumed and all the machines are stopped. The only difference with hibernation is, in hibernation mode, the PC’s hardware are slightly living but in the case of shut down, they don’t.

In Hibernation, all current computer settings and memory contents are saved, the local hard disk keeps all the information, and then the computer goes off. It is recommended only if you plan on saving the current session quickly and restore from where you've left.
Shut Down is simply turning off the machine; if you want to save anything you have to do it manually before shutting down.
