Microsoft has been weakening the hibernation function, perhaps for fear that users will confuse sleep mode with hibernation mode. But hibernation is a very useful feature. When you choose to put your computer into hibernate mode, all your currently running programs, open windows, etc. will be saved to a file on your hard drive or SSD, and your computer will not require power maintenance. When you wake up next time, your entire desktop program will be restored immediately.
