Re: Does Stand By require any battery power on a laptop?
stand by, or hibernate? standby means the computer is still on, which requires power. hibernate is when the comp saves your current stuff to the hd and shuts down, then when you hit the power switch, it comes back on exactly as you left it..requires no battery power.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
