    Hibernate mode is a special form of shutdown in which the current state of the computer is saved to disk, and the computer is completely turned off. When a computer resumes from hibernation, it reads the saved state data and restores the system to the same state. Programs that were open are restarted and network connections are restored without you losing any kind of data that you left opened (saved or unsaved)
