Pros/Cons of Hibernation vs. Shutdown

By nkp55 ·
Is it better to avoid frequent use of Hibernate for the desktop computer hardware? I used to hear that it was preferable to leave the computer on all the time but I think frequent use of Hibernate is better except I see it putting a thermal shock on hardware just as off/on does. Is it better to just use Standby so parts are kept warm? Energy conservation is not the issue.

It's a non-issue

I don't think the thermal issue is valid anymore. The big problem was supposed to be the "chip creep" it created, but that's history now. I haven't seen anything written in the last 3 or 4 years that suggested this was a problem anymore.

Hibernate opens the door to questions about remote activation/access, too. I just shut everything down if I know it won't be used for a few hours.

My 2cts.
