    Sleep or hibernate Windows overnight?


    So, I just moved from Mac to Windows 10 laptop. On my MacBook, I never did a shut down. I would simply put it to sleep overnight and then continue using it next day. I really don't want to shut down the Windows and then have all the programs load up again when I start it up next day (it's kind of annoying and I'm used to of instantly using the computer next day and conitnuing where I left off). I tried putting the Windows to sleep but next day more than half of my battery was drained. On the Macbook, sleep mode barely takes any battery.

    So, what do you guys advise? Should I instead use the hibernate to replicate what sleep mode did for me on the Macbook? Or is there no way but to just shut down the laptop when I'm done for the day?

    :)

    sleep or hibernate

    sleep and hibernate are the same thing now.


    S3 'sleep' has the entire system powered off, EXCEPT for system ram. a copy of ram is stored on the HDD when entering sleep.
    To answer the OP's question about the HDD taking wear and tear moving the laptop around - in sleep mode, it is powered off. ONLY system RAM has power in S3 sleep states.

    Hibernate is when it loses power, it boots from the saved copy of ram. Often, this can load slower than a fresh boot since it has to load more from the HDD than usual.


    so asking which you prefer... well, unless its a laptop you plan to store overnight or something, use sleep. its the same thing.

    S3 sleep drains my laptop battery at only 2-3% an hour, so its not like its going to have a large impact on daily use.

    Battery drain in sleep and hibernation

    Since a clean installation of Win 10 my laptop battery has begun to completely drain overnight when in sleep or hibernate modes. It is ok when powered off so I suspect the battery is ok.

    Any suggestions?
