    A power saver and a good way in keeping the time it takes to boot up to a minimum whilst saving the state of the machine.

    The way I read it, hibernate is mainly for laptops to save battery power. I have a desktop and was told Standby is better to use and quicker to recover from. I just tap the mouse to restore the desktop. Try 'em both.:)

    Never used it because i heard many complaints about this MS utility i.e. it really hibernates that deep to the point not getting out of it.I guess standby is a better option.

    I only ever enable it to just select systems in which i run a System Multi-Scheduled Shutdown program on them to take full advantage of this Window's feature.

    Otherwise it's a paperweight and just takes up space better reserved for real useage even though it's not that much of a hog.

    Hibernate works day in, day out on both my XP32 and 64, its a time saver, also unless you have added new hardware, saves the load of detecting new hardware every time the PC boots.

    Hello,

    I never use those for several reasons:

    1. My machines are always doing something.
    2. Causes increased defragmentation.
    3. RAM contents are dumped in plain text to hard disk, including passwords.
