Stand By Vs. Hibernate

Stand By: A state in which the computer is put to save energy when you do not use it. Information is not saved to the hard disk, so if power goes out you will lose you work.

  • Advantages: quick turn on if immediate use is necessary.
  • Disadvantage if laptop: wastes battery life.

Hibernate: Your work is saved to the hard disk, and then Windows shuts down. When you turn on your computer back on, Windows returns to the saved settings.

  • Advantages: all your work will be saved without any worry about it, and saves battery life.
  • Disadvantages: doesn’t load as quickly as Stand By.
