My System Specs


Hibernate should be fine as that shutting the power off basically. It saves the RAM to the hard drive and powers off. When you turn it back on, it loads the data back into the RAM and puts you back where you were.

Sleep, it depends which mode. S1 I believe leaves power running along with all your fans and stuff so I'd assume the pump would still run. In S3 mode, all the power seems to go off but maybe a low voltage still exists to keep the RAM alive, but I don't think the CPU/GPU run though.

I don't know for sure though so don't take my word for it. Pretty sure about the hibernate though.
