    I have a Windows XP Dell 4700. Instead of shutting down my PC every night I am planning to experiment with System Standby and Hibernation

    I was just going to ask you guys which do you guys use and why? Also, which is more safe? Better for your system? Thanks! :)

    safer...shut it down every nite...hibernate uses more hard drive space...it writes whatever amount of memory you have installed plus 1 MB to the hard drive....when your system is properly set up it takes less than a minute to boot...
