Nowadays people want to customize their PC’s to complete their tasks very fast. To skip system shutdown and booting process time there is a feature you can use is hibernating your system. Every computer can use this feature no matter whether they are Laptops, Desktops, Macs, Chromebooks.
If you regularly use your system, and you want to shut down your PC or Laptop, you should save all the tasks which are running at the current time. Later if you want to switch on your system, you need to wait for the booting process to complete which takes minimum a 1 or 2 minutes. Once OS is up again, you need to relaunch all the programs which you are using and documents which you are editing.
Hibernate preserves the current session of all the programs and documents. When you are completed working on your system just close the lid of Laptop (select hibernate option on the desktop) or press the power button to hibernate the system without worrying about closing or save the process of your task.
When you come back and switch on the system, everything will be there exactly as you left. It will take less than one minute to back up the process if you hibernate your system. All your documents and programs remain same and ready to work instantly without waiting for the boot process to complete.
