Hibernation Mode vs Shut Down
These two are identical in everyway, where the power shuts down completely unlike Sleep mode (or Standby on older versions of Windows) where the computer is still running but in a low power state.
So my question is, why would you want to use the Shut Down option when Hibernation is obviously the better choice because boot time is instant? Under normal circumstance though. I understand you need to do a clean reboot or shut down for software installtions or configurations and errors that may occur, but besides that, Hibernation seems to be a pretty nice feature.
So which one would you use?
