Question about Computers & Internet
What does "hibernation" do and what does "stand by' do?
Hibernation: The computer saves all data currently in memory and all open programs just as they are. It freezes everything in a way. All the saved programs and data are written to the hard drive for storage. That way the computer can sit for a long time without drawing power to keep the open programs and data saved. However, it will take a longer time to wake up the computer.
Standby: The computer does not save open programs and data to the hard drive. Instead it keeps everything open and simply goes into a super lower power state. The memory receives a constant stream of minor power so that it can keep the programs and data in memory until the computer is woken back up. The computer will wake up much quicker but will draw power slowly as it sits in Standby mode.
