Hibernate for Windows is a program built into most PCs running Microsoft Windows. Chances are, you have used it at some point in your life if you are familiar with the Windows OS. Hibernate is a handy feature that essentially allows you to power off your PC without losing anything you are currently working on or viewing. When you power your PC back on, the contents of your screen will be exactly the same as when you put your computer into Hibernate mode. It does this by taking the information which is typically kept on your PCs RAM, and storing it to an alternative source, typically on your computer's hard drive. This has many uses, one of which is not having to tediously go through and save multiple files or tabs in your web browser.
Hibernate is basically a safer "Sleep" mode for your computer. Since "Sleep" mode only stores information on your RAM, if your computer or house has a power failure, the information will be lost for good. This is not the case with Hibernate for Windows since the information is stored on your actual hard drive. In the event of a power failure, your information and files are completely safe. Here are just some of the many great reasons to use Hibernate.
