Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hibernation in computing is powering down a computer while retaining its state. Upon hibernation, the computer saves the contents of its random access memory to a hard disk or other non-volatile storage. Upon resumption, the computer is exactly as it was upon entering hibernation. When used to save power, hibernation is similar to sleep mode and saves more power at the cost of slower resumption. Hibernation saves electrical power. After hibernating, the hardware is completely powered down. Therefore a hibernated machine uses no more electrical power than one which is switched off. Meanwhile, hibernation is a means of avoiding the burden of saving unsaved data before shutting down and restoring all running programs after powering back on.show more
