Hibernate mode is a way to save power when using your laptop or PC. Sleep mode stores any open work in memory, then "sleeps" while drawing minimal power. But, hibernate mode actually stores your work as a "hiberfile," and then shuts your system down. And, when you start your PC back up again, you'll never know the difference. It picks up right where you left off.
Some people like this feature, and some people don't. It's one of those things that is a personal preference. But, the good news is, it's a simple setting to change.
Follow these easy steps:
- Open your control panel, then find your 'Power Options."
- On the left-hand side, click "Choose what power button does."
- Go to "Shutdown settings," then click "Change settings currently unavailable."
- Click the "Hibernate" box, then click "Save Changes."
