Windows 7: When I Hibernate?

When I Hibernate?

When I hibernate my PC, will the Internet Connection be active?

Suppose, I'm running some torrents all night. Can I hibernate my PC?

Or we have any other option to opt for other than running the processor all night. Thanks.

From the help screen:

Quote:
Hibernation is a power-saving state designed primarily for laptops. While sleep puts your work and settings in memory and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your computer. Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power. On a laptop, use hibernation when you know that you won't use your laptop for an extended period and won't have an opportunity to charge the battery during that time.
So no internet. The computer is turned off

Is your PC a desktop or laptop? You shouldn't need to Hibernate unless you have a laptop and no outlet. Sleep won't allow you to continue downloading either, though - to keep your internet connection active, you need to keep the computer awake.

You can however turn just the display off by going to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Power Options > Edit Plan Settings.
