Hibernate is a great feature that, unlike the sleep mode that puts your work and settings in memory and draws a tiny amount of power, it grabs open files and programs and saves them on your hard drive; then the computer turns off. Which means better battery life and that, for example, you can unplug or take out the battery of a laptop and later when you resume Windows, you can pick up where you left-off.
