View Full Version : Best way to shut down laptop with XP?

I have a new laptop running XP Home. I hear confusing reports on shutting down - sleep, hibernate and power down. Which is the best method for closing down during the day for say, 2 hour periods, extended periods,say 8 hours, and overnight.

My grateful thanks as always for your generous help.

The best way to go is hibernate. It is fast and if you have a good CPU and nice ram, works like a breeze. I use it all the time + it saves power.
