My PC Heats Up While Hibernating

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

My friend has been constantly putting his computer on a standby and hibernate mode. For a very very long time he has been doing this without any problems, but of late the computer has been very unstable and  its speed has also reduced. He has been handling it with a lot of care and he is linking the slow speed and the instability of the computer to the fact that he has been hibernating it most of the time. The most disturbing question is whether placing a computer system on a standby and hibernation modes can render a computer unstable and maybe crash it?

My PC Heats Up While Hibernating


Sleeping or hibernate mode the processor is completely OFF, it will not produce any hot air. It will not damage your computer. Hibernation uses no power. Ram stores its data to hard drive and it will retrieve when it reboots. Sleep mode computer use more power or electricity than a shutdown computer, power needed to run some circuit. RAM is a volatile memory. It has to maintain its data, so it needs electricity to hold data without any lose.

Computer can become unstable because of overheating. This may due to, 

1. Dust. Dust can be removed with compressed air.

2. Large number of application being installed, updated, uninstalled. Use ccleaner to remove unwanted files.

3. Hard disk problem.

4. Outdated OS and device driver software. Format the system and install the OS and device driver software.
