Why should we Enable Hibernate feature in Windows 10 ?
Hibernate mode is very similar to sleep, but instead of saving our open documents and running applications to your RAM, it saves them to our hard disk. This allows our computer to turn off entirely, which means once our computer is in Hibernate mode, it uses zero power. Once the computer is powered back on, it will resume everything where we left off. It just takes a bit longer to resume than sleep mode does.
The main advantage is that all your programs and documents stay open so you can continue your work later. Another advantage is that usually it takes less to wake up from hibernation than powering up from zero, especially if the computer is slow or you have many programs in the start up list.
1. The RAM is not getting refreshed in the case of Hibernation. This may lead to the memory leakage.
In the normal shutdown- Boot up process the RAM will get refreshed every time the system boots
2) Biggest disadvantage is that this way you don’t shut down the computer for days, weeks or even months, so sometimes the system gets chocked and chocked and goes slower with no apparent reason. Some reboots now and then or normal shut downs are recommended. Also, a big file (hiberfil.sys) will be created on hard drive with the size equal to the amount of memory you have (1 GB memory >> 1 GB file size).
