Hibernation - Definition

Hibernation is a power saving state in which your computer shuts down after saving everything in memory on your hard disk. When you bring your computer out of hibernation, all programs and documents that were open are restored exactly as they were to your desktop. To use hibernation, the hard disk needs to have at least as much free space as there is RAM on the system. Hibernation is often used on notebook computers and can generally be set to enter this mode automatically when battery power is critically low.
