Do you mean it was an accident, or deliberate ??
I have never used Sleep Mode on any computer that I have owned -
The safest thing I always think, is to turn the computer Off once you are actually finished with it, or just let it go to screen saver if I am away for an hour -
Your computer / laptop can always wake from sleep mode in its storage bag if there is a scan scheduled for the Antivirus or similar.
If it is in a storage bag, the temperatures can get too high due to lack of ventilation and create problems.
My desktop is switched off at the wall every night, or if I am not using it for the day. The same for my laptop, powered off and left off unless it is wanted.
Since it only takes 30 to 60 seconds to power up I see no need for Sleep or Hibernation mode at any time -
I hope this covers your question -
