Windows XP Hibernate Mode and Standby Mode
Post by: admin

Doing work at computer sometimes need more times, we have to open many windows or programs together at desktop. One think that make me unhappy is when first time we start computer, we have to wait about 2-4 minutes until computer completely ready to use, the time is depend on how much services that Windows XP have to load/start.

For me, the waiting time is bothering, because I have to wait for start Windows and also wait open other program which I want to start. But unfortunately Windows XP have a solution to avoid startup waiting time problem. The Windows XP facilities know as Hibernate mode & Standby mode.


What is Hibernate?

Hibernate at Windows XP is an automatic facilities to save the state where we are working now (before turning off the computer), and save all condition at harddisk space. After saving process finish, the computer will be shutting down. If we start or turn on the computer, then the Hibernate computer will start by opening hibernate file saving, and start the Windows at the condition where the computer is shutting down. So we will not lose the opening software and also we don't have to worry losing what we work when we forget to save the workspace.

The file state of hibernate save at C: root drive, and hidden by filesystem to ignore deleted or disturbed by user. The size of hibernate file state is the save as the size of our memory RAM. Let's say we have 1GB RAM, the hibernate filesize at harddisk will be as big as 1GB. The larger RAM will make the time to hibernate take more longger. At my situation, I have 3GB RAM, to hibernate I need about 30-40 second before the computer turning off. This time also same when I turn on the Hibernate Windows XP.

What is Standby Mode?

The standby mode is more less the same with Hibernate mode, the only difference is the saving state is not save at harddisk, but Standby file state will be save at RAM drive, so the Standby mode is more faster than Hibernate mode. At my situation, I need about only 5 seconds to standby mode and computer will be turnoff automatically.

When the computer is at standby mode, the computer still need power resource, because by fact the computer is not really shutting down. So, if we are at standby mode, and the power resource is off, then the standby state will be disappear and when we start the computer, then the Windows XP will start like normal startup. This is not happen at hibernate mode, at Hibernate mode, even we disconnect the power resource, the hibernate file state is not disappear. We still can start the computer at hibernate state when the computer power on (after loosing the power source before).

I really like to use hibernate mode when I turn off my computer. The Windows XP can control the power switch to go to hibernate, so when the computer on, and we press the power button, then the computer will automatically go to hibernate mode. We can change the setting at Control Panel > Power Options.
