    Default hibernate or shutdown?

    hibernating is about loading your hibersys file from HDD of your system to the RAM of your system. But I always wonder why a computer starts faster when you have hibernated it then when I had shut it down.
    can anyone please explain?

    Simple reason, when PC hibernates it saves your settings and hibernate and whan you start you PC it don't have to load all the windows components, drivers etc becuse Windows has already saved their state and all it need is to start them which is comparatively faster as compared to first loading them and than starting them as in the case of start up.

    I feel this way.

    hi !

    the answer is in your own post amandeep...

    the computer loads hiberfil.sys instead of starting the whole system.

    if you want your computer to start even faster you can use "Sleep" instead of "Hibernate".

    When you're hibernating you're not leaving your system on, you're saving its state on the HDD and shutting down completely (i.e. not dragging power). It's handy if you're in the middle of something important and want to shut down your system but you just can't afford losing your state for whatever reason. Or you're just too lazy to wait for your PC to boot up whenever you turn it on. :P

    Dude111: have you read the FIRST post ???
    i strongly suggest you read it !
    this is NOT a poll.
    we have a poll in ANOTHER thread (as you well know, because you have already posted the same opinion there.)

    in the FIRST post amandeep asked why its faster to recover from hibernate then starting the whole system.

    PLEASE, keep this thread on the subject !
