Hibernate Vs Sleep

Sleep Mode: In Sleep Mode the computer technically stays on while all actions on the computer are stopped and any open documents and applications are put in memory while the computer goes into a low-power state

Hibernate: Hibernate mode is very similar to sleep, but instead of saving your open documents and running applications to your RAM, it saves them to your hard disk. This allows your computer to turn off entirely, which means once your computer is in Hibernate mode, it uses zero power. Once the computer is powered back on, it will resume everything where you left off. and instead, it will take longer to start again.
