Sleep means the laptop is trickle-powered, on just enough, to keep your place -- sort of like an "electronic bookmark". Hibernate, like Shutdown powers the laptop off [no sleeping], right after it makes a hiberfil file that, when laptop's power button is pressed, will restore the previous hibernated Windows session, the present Windows session is exactly like the previous one.
I have every WakeOnLan, "wake on remote access attempt" off or disabled [in BIOS and in Windows].
I have Close Lid = does nothing. That forces me to pick the ways I want Windows Session to end & laptop to power off.
Just before leaving one room and going into another room - click on Start, click on right arrow [which is next to Shutdown], click on Hibernate -- and I wait until laptop has completely hibernated and powered off before placing in rolling backpack.
Somebody email me a dictionary <Charlie Brown sigh> - it's hibernate, not hybernate
