Sleep is the same as Suspend-to-
RAM (STR). This function stores 
your current data and status in 
RAM while many components 
are turned OFF. Because RAM 
is volatile, it requires power to 
keep (refresh) the data. Click 
the Windows button and the 
arrowhead next to the lock icon 
to see this option. You can also use the keyboard shortcut [Fn F1
to activate this mode. Recover by pressing any keyboard key except 
[Fn]. (NOTE: The power indicator will blink in this mode.)
Hibernate is the same as Suspend-to-Disk (STD) and stores 
your current data and status on the hard disk drive. By doing 
this, RAM does not have to be periodically refreshed and power 
consumption is greatly reduced but not completely eliminated 
because certain wake-up components like LAN needs to remain 
powered. “Hibernate” saves more power compared to “Sleep”. Click 
the Windows button and the arrowhead next to the lock icon to see 
this option. Recover by pressing the power button. (NOTE: The power 
indicator will be OFF in this mode.)
