    HELLO

    No its completely false information given by your friend,Let me give you some information on HIBERNATION

    When you put your computer into Hibernation and you turn your computer back on,

    it will look the exact same as it did before it went into Hibernation.

    There is no risk of losing anything when the computer is Hibernating,

    because it will be completely shut itself down..the computer will be OFF and using NO power is used at all while in Hibernation.

    But, the computer could take several minutes to go into Hibernation, and come out of Hibernation.

    Hibernation Advantages: Computer uses no power while in hibernate mode. Unsaved data is safe while Hibernating. Great for laptops!

    Hibernation Disadvantages: Slow procedure compared to Standby Mode. Computer can take several minutes to go into and come out of Hibernation; not ideal when

    quick access to the computer is necessary


    ALL THE BEST

    4 DISADVANTAGES OF HIBERNATE PC


    1. Actually, Hibernate is very useful But if you are using windows xp sp2, and have more than 1gb of ram, your system's hiberation will be hit and miss unless you down load an update

    2. The major Drawback of hibernation is that it consumes your battery and reduces the battery life

    3. It's not advisable to hibernate when you are running heavy applications. This is because an error could occur in the application especially if it's one that has many threads

    4. The other disadvantage of hibernating your laptop or pc is that it uses lots of disk space and suystem resources

    Hi Friend,

    It is not true that hibernating Windows XP harms the Notebook.

    >> The Hibernation process do Move data of RAM into hard Disk and When start system again then Data from Hard disk is moved to RAM.

    >> So you don't worry about the Hibernate Process.

    >> It will not Harm or Damage any hardware or any component of the System.

    >> So you can use Hibernate Process.

    I hope you will understand.

    All The Best

    Youdon't need to be serious about this issue of discussion with your friend.

    If you dont get in to detailes just consider the fact that would there have the option if it was harmful, and microsoft developers are qualified enough and inventive enough to create the option do Hybernation is a wonderful tool and not something that harm your system.

    Hibernation only protects your computers components in fact, and reduces its energy wastage.

    It only lets the components rest without shutting off and reduce voltage flow and helps components last longer and battery to retain charge for long.

    Dear friend,

    Hibernation does not affect the durability of Windows XP notebook anyway. In fact, it is an additional tool
    to speed up the start-up and shutdown of your notebook. During hibernation the present state of the RAM files
    copied exactly to your hard disk and during a restart, these files are loaded into your RAM exactly the same way
    as before. So it reduces the time by which your program gets loaded during normal start-up.


    Sometime you may face problem with hibernation because of in complete saving of RAM files to your hard disk, but not always.


    I’d like to mention here that in Microsoft’s latest operating system Windows 8, there is a combination of hibernation + shutdown, which increases its boot speed.


    Thanks!

    Yes, it is totally false to say hibernation decreases durability of system.

    Hibernation on Windows:

    When Windows enter in hibernation it saves all its memory content in a file on the hard drive (hiberfil.sys) then powers the entire system off.

    Advantages
    * The main advantage is that all your programs and documents stay open so you can continue your work later

    Disadvantages

    * The RAM is not getting refreshed in the case of Hibernation. This may lead to the memory leakage.
    * Biggest disadvantage is that this way you don’t shut down the computer for days, weeks or even months

    Not exactly, but there will be few changes in the speed of your system if you enable hibernate option in your system.
    to understand more read this

    Like Stand By, you can recover your exact place where your system was previously. The difference is that your system will shutdown but it power will not be used to save the state of your system. By performing hibernation your data is saved to your hard disk and not in RAM.

    This makes it a safer, but slower option for shut down and resume.

    Hibernate will save your desktop state and opened files to a file called hiberfil.sys.

    The above mentioned file is a large file. This large file usually saved in your root folder (c:\hiberfil.sys).

    Size of this file will be almost equal to the RAM you have in your system.

    If you have 2 GB RAM on your system , the hibernate file will use 2GB of space in your hard disk.

    Important thing to consider is one can delete the hiberfil.sys file only if you disable hibernate option in their system.



    When you press your power button, Windows will start and open the files you were using.
    The process is not fast as with Stand By, but gets you to the same place where you are working previously.
    This is faster than restarting your system because system need not to detect your hardware in hibernate mode.


    Happy to assist you
