So when a PC that has been set to Standby will start up quicker than one that was set to Hibernate . And a PC that has been set to Hibernate will start up quicker than from a normal start up .
Typical start up times are :
Standby – 15 seconds ,
Hibernate – 35 seconds ,
Normal start – 2 minutes .
Depending on the way that they are set up , most laptops will move to Standby after a few minutes of inactivity and then will go to Hibernation after a few more minutes . You can change these settings in : Start Menu > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options > Power Schemes . The options are self-explanatory .
A PC that is always started from standby or hibernation will need starting normally from time to time to clear out the gradual buildup of memory errors that accumulate thanks to poor programming . . . . . . .
