Hibernate vs. Shutdown

I prefer sleep mode. However, if there’s a power outage, hibernate would be a good choice because it saves the contents of the RAM to the hard drive. In terms of wear and tear, total shut down takes a little longer to start up, but overall there is not much of a difference. What I do is set the power save settings to let the computer go to sleep after a certain amount of time of idle time.
