  • What Is The Difference Between Hibernate, Sleep, Shutdown

    Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernation are different power management modes that can be used to manage power consumption of the computer. These power management modes have various advantages.

     Shutdown

     The process involves disconnecting the power supply to the machine. The state (services and apps are running at the moment) of the operating system is not retained before initiating the shutdown process. So, when you boot your machine next time, the system loads with its default settings and services. The machine takes longer than other power management modes.

     Sleep

     Once the Sleep mode (standby in earlier Windows) is called for action, the machine enters a low power mode. The power supply to the components, except the RAM, gets disconnected. RAM retains the state of the computer till the time. When the machine wakes up, all the services and apps previously running get back to their normal operation. Sleep mode automatically turns on most of the machines as a measure to conserve power.

     Hibernation

     In this process, the power is cut from the system. So, how it is different from Shutdown? In hibernation, the state of the system is transferred to the hard drive as a file before disconnecting the power source. The state of the system is reinstated when the system is powered on. Hibernation is beneficial over sleep mode as it saves more amount of power but the machine takes more time to wake up in comparison to sleep.

  • What If I Never Shut Down My Computer? Are Hibernate And Sleep Options Enough?

    Do you shut down your computer completely multiple times in a day? Or, do you prefer hibernate and sleep options? Modern computers are designed to benefit the users with hibernate and sleep options.

    What if I never Shutdown my PC?

     The modern day operating systems are designed in such a manner that they can be used for a long time without performing the complete shutdown process. However, there are some points that one should keep in mind.

     Software issues: On the software front, the programs being used by you keep collecting all sorts of junk. So, restarting your computer might rejuvenate it and make it seem faster. Well, if your computer has enough RAM, it can be used for a longer period of time without shutdown.

      Hardware issues: The computer hardware consist of different moving parts that are bound to age with time and continuous heat. Your operating system might run without any hiccup, but your hardware will suffer. When it comes to leaving a computer running, there’s another big factor in the form of a hefty electricity bill.

    So, what should I choose? Shutdown, hibernate, or sleep?

     In a nutshell, a modern computer can run for multiple days without a complete shutdown. It goes without saying that one needs to reboot it to complete some installation or update process. But, if your computer can’t run smoothly without frequent reboots, it’s because of outdated hardware or some other problem.

     In the end, your choices matter. But, there’s no point turning your computer on and off multiple times a day. You can use the sleep option and get back to work instantly. Just in case you wish to save some more electricity and avoid sleep, you can hibernate your computer. If you aren’t going to use your PC for some days, or it’s showing some laggy behavior, you can surely book a ride to the shutdown town.
