What’s Best for Computers – Standby, Shut Down or Hibernate?

Shut Down
A full shut down is more like a full night’s sleep or even biological hibernation. It powers off your computer completely. It’s always the best option when you are not using your computer for a while.
It is the best environmental option because it draws no power, and can even safely unplug the computer or shut off the power strip to the computer and all the other office peripherals. The power savings are also financial savings.
