    Why does "sleep" go to "hibernate" after awile?


    When I'm not done using my laptop for the day, I put it in sleep mode so it starts up faster when I turn it back on. When I do this when the laptop is plugged into an electrical outlet, this seems to work alright, but if it's not plugged in and just running on battery, it only stays in sleep mode for maybe a half hour or so, and then seems to go to hibernate. I say this because when I turn the computer back on any later than that after being in sleep on battery power, the black "DELL" screen pops up first for awhile, just as if I had hibernated the computer. Normally after being put to sleep, the lock screen comes up right away.

    Is there a setting to change so that it stays in sleep mode?

    :)

    Sleep,hibernate, and shutdown

    Hi,

    Usually, Sleep and Hibernate features are used to save power when using a computer. However, hibernate may not be available for all PCs as it was designed for laptops. Regarding your concern, since you’re trying to turn
    off or disable these features, you may follow the step below:

    • To turn off Sleep:

      Go to Settings > System > Power & sleep. Then, select
      Never from the drop-down list under the Sleep section.

    • To disable Hibernate:
    • Type Command Prompt in the Search box from
      Start
      .
    • Right-click on it, then select Run as administrator.
    • In the Command Prompt window, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off and press
      Enter. Close the window.

    We’re just here if you need further help.

    sleep or hibernate

    I think you have sleep and hibernate confused... sleep just puts the computer in a low power state, making resuming the session faster... hibernate shuts down the whole computer and basically just saves whats in RAM to the hdd and loads it on next startup. IIRC...
