The question of the week is, "what is the difference between hibernate and sleep mode?"
Sleep: When the computer is a sleep it does consumes less power. Everything is kept in memory making the computer come back on a lot quicker and easier. The problem is if power is removed from the computer, anything not saved or opened will be closed.
Hibernate: When the computer hibernates it saves everything to a file on the hard drive and is closer to a state of shutdown. It does take more effort to restart the machine. However, if power was removed from the computer, all your unsaved files will be temporarily saved.
If you are wanting to conserve power, hibernate will be a better choice. However, if you are wanting to conserve power but are in constant use of the computer, sleep mode would be the better choice. Either way, both choices are easier on the computer than constantly turning it off and then back on.
