What is S3/Standby/Suspend to RAM and S4/Hibernate/Suspend to Disk?

S3/Standby is a "sleep state" (suspend to the system memory) that is supported by the systems hardware and certain operating systems. Once the system goes to sleep, it will "wake up" when the mouse is moved,any key is pressed on the keyboard or the power button is pressed .Auto Power-on & Shut-down can wake up the computer from standby or hibernation state at specified time. S4/Hibernate is a "sleep state" in which data is moved from system memory to the hard disk. This enables a system to 'wake' quickly while still helping to maintain data since you are not subject to power outages like you are when a system is in a screen saver mode, in S1 or in Standby (S3).
State Description
S0/Working System is on. The CPU is fully up and running; power conservation is on a per-device basis.
S1 Sleep System appears off. The CPU is stopped; RAM is refreshed; the system is running in a low power mode.
S2 Sleep System appears off. The CPU has no power; RAM is refreshed; the system is in a lower power mode than S1.
S3 Sleep (Standby) System appears off. The CPU has no power; RAM is in slow refresh; the power supply is in a reduced power mode. This mode is also referred to as 'Save To RAM'.
S4 Hibernate System appears off. The hardware is completely off, but system memory has been saved as a temporary file onto the harddisk. This mode is also referred to as 'Save To Disk'.
S5/Off System is off. The hardware is completely off, the operating system has shut down; nothing has been saved. Requires a complete reboot to return to the Working state.

Which operating systems support Standby (S3) and Hibernate (S4)?

S3 an S4 are supported by Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Me and Windows 98SE. Windows 95 and Windows NT do not support S3/4.

- In order to make your computer support s3 sleep (standby) mode you should:
To enter the CMOS Setup, you must press a certain key or combination of keys during the initial startup sequence. Most systems use "Esc," "Del," "F1," "F2," "Ctrl-Esc" or "Ctrl-Alt-Esc" to enter setup. There is usually a line of text at the bottom of the display that tells you "Press ___ to Enter Setup."

- Once you have entered setup, you will see a set of text screens with a number of options. Some of these are standard, while others vary according to the BIOS manufacturer.
