There are different power options i.e. power off, log out, restart, suspend or sleep and hibernate on a computer system. We mostly use the power off, restart, and logout options but suspend and hibernate options are less used.
Today in this article I will discuss the difference between Suspend and Hibernate on a computer system.
What is Suspend mode?
Suspend which is also known as Sleep or Standby mode. In Suspend mode a computer system cuts the power of its unnecessary subsystems and gets into lower power consumption mode. The RAM keeps powered and active during the entire suspension period to preserve its data.
In other words, we can say putting a system in Suspend mode is “Pausing” its state. If there is no interaction between system and user for a certain period of time most laptop enters automatically in Suspend mode to save power consumption.
Pressing a key or quickly pressing and releasing the power button will resume the machine. Everything will continue from the same point as it was before getting into Suspend mode.
What is Hibernate mode?
In Hibernate mode all the data of the current session which is in RAM is first copied to the hard disk (Usually to swap space) and then the system gets shutdown. When you switch on your system again the saved data first gets copied to RAM which makes it start from the same point as it was before hibernation.
There is no power consumption in this mode as during the hibernation period system is powered off. To get back to the working state again simply press the power button.
