Windows 7: Writes to hyberfil.sys

Writes to hyberfil.sys

Does Win 7 constantly write to the hyberfil.sys file or only when the computer is going into hibernation?The reason I ask is the only way my UPS can save my work before shutting down the computer in the event of a power failure is to hibernate it so, obviously, I need hibernate enabled, complete with the hyberfil.sys file but, at the same time, I don't want a lot of unnecessary writes going to my SSD.
