Nothing in this world is more worth than a beautiful sleep. This is because it makes us to be more active for the next day without any cost. So you may wonder why this guy is talking about a topic which is totally not related to this site. Well you may find it soon at the end of this article.
1. Stand By,
If you know how and most likely if you’ve been working with Windows XP for more than a day, you do this often you can hold down Shift and get the Hibernate option. You probably understand that Stand By is the fastest to recover from but still requires power from your battery (if you are using a laptop) or power supply. If you Hibernate, you freeze your system and you can leave all your applications up, but it takes longer to come back to life from hibernation than Stand By. The benefit, however, is that you don’t use battery life.
Well in Vista’s Sleep Mode gives you the best of both worlds. It is actually the default way to shutdown your system, both desktops and laptops. When you select the Start button, a power button appears that enables you to put the system in Sleep Mode. For desktops, this means your system state is written from RAM to a file called Hiberil.sys and then your system goes into StandBy. This provides a quick return from sleep when you sit back down at your computer, but it also ensures recovery in cases of emergency (in the event the power goes off).The system is actually still drawing power for things such as the CPU, the RAM, and a Few chipset features.
On laptops it works slightly different. Initially when the system is put in Sleep Mode (by Closing the lid, leaving the system idle for any extended period of time, or telling it to Sleep), your system state is only put in Stand By without writing to the hard disk and Vista uses a low power mode (better than in XP) to keep the state alive. Power is being drawn from the battery as it is in Stand By mode, but not as much power is used. Still, though, given enough time, you will run low on power. Before that happens thanks to Monitoring by the system your system wakes up, does a hibernate, and then shuts off. When you turn on a system from Sleep Mode (either a laptop or a desktop), if it hasn’t “Hibernated,” it should return quickly and restore your system and applications instantaneously, Just as StandBy does. If it has hibernated, it comes back to life the same way a hibernated system does with XP.
“Desktops, by default, also go into hybrid Sleep Mode if you leave them for an extended period of time. Microsoft says this saves huge amounts of energy, thus assisting the environment with global warming issues.”
Well floks what you say “Let’s put our computers to sleep and give this world an extra pulse to live”
