Hibernate saves an image of your desktop with all open files and documents, and powers down your computer. When you turn on power, your files and documents are open on your desktop exactly as you left them.

Standby reduces the power consumption of your computer by cutting power to hardware components you are not using. Standby can cut power to peripheral devices, your monitor, and even your hard drive, but maintains power to your computer's memory so you don't lose your work.

Standby reduces power consumption from about 50 to 2.5 watts, while Hibernate reduces it from about 50 to 1.8 watts, since modern computers are always using some power even when "off".

Since the difference in the amount of power saved is insignificant and users are more likely to get in the habit of choosing standby because it is faster, standby may be the best choice for environmentally conscious users.

Stand by in windows is where the computer is still turned on and will resume when you want it to. Hibernate is where it saves your session (keeps what you are doing, yes everything) and then turns off the computer. When it is turned back on your session will be restored.

The difference b/w the prime generator & standby generator is that the prime generator is used for 24/7/365, while the standby generators are only used in emergency cases, if we used standby generators for more than 24 hours continuously, then it will be overheated for sure.

Restarting means the computer will power down, turn off, and start up again. Standby means it saves your current windows you have opened to its hard drive and turns off. Then when you turn it on again it starts up faster and all your progress is saved.

In the hibernation state, the computer is essentially turned-off. When it starts up again, it remembers all that it had running previously and loads them up for you. You could unplug it or change batteries and it wouldn't have to do a full restart. In the standby state, the computer shuts off everything except the processor and memory (and sometimes the network interface). This is a power saving mode and the computer takes very little time to go from the standby state to the 'fully-on' state.
