...Hibernate saves an image of your desktop with all open files and documents, and then it powers down your computer. When you turn on power, your files and documents are open on your desktop exactly as you left them.

Standby reduces the power consumption of your computer by cutting power to hardware components you are not using. Standby can cut power to peripheral devices, your monitor, even your hard drive, but maintains power to your computer's memory so you don't lose your work...

Use Hibernate and Standby

Standby requires that there be power to the computer (to the RAM).

Hibernate copies the RAM to the hard drive and then shuts the system off.

Standby is faster to start than Hibernation - but Hibernation will survive power surges which Standby won't.

I don't know if I can ask a related question on this post or need to start a new one - so please bear with me - My keyboard has both a sleep and wakeup button. Is this the same as stand-by or hibernate function? - thanks - Keith

Yes it is, and usually you start a new post, but in this case I don't think it matters.

FWIW - there's also a thing called "Power States" in your computer's BIOS that will do similar things. Most commonly you'll see them notated as S1 or S3 - they provide different ways of shutting your system down that are similar to Standby and Hibernation.

The shortcut keys in your keyboard are programmable, and if you installed the software that came with the keyboard you should be able to determine what target that key is targeted to.
