Re: Hibernate or shut down

It depends...if you want the programs to keep running, you can put your laptop in hibernate. But if you don't need them, shut down is the best method.

Re: Hibernate or shut down

But if I keep my PC on hibernate mode for 2 hours, will it consume power?

Yes. A tiny amount. Less than if you left it on sleep.
