Whenever my computer is on battery or plugged in and idle I already know when my screen display will go off, sleep or hibernate. This could be really helpful most times, whether you want to preserve your battery or you don’t want some people to have access to your computer when you are not there.
Whenever a computer screen immediately display goes off, the computer is still active and not locked but people coming to see might think it’s on hibernation already except the curious ones who touches the keyboard. Whenever a computer sleeps, the screen display goes off and the computer is locked, it also preserves your battery. Only those who know your password can have access to your computer at this period of time.
Whenever a computer goes into hibernation, it goes into a deep sleep, the computer will go off completely but when switched on back it resumes and takes you back to where you left of. Hence, the importance of setting the time when your computer it turns off display, goes to sleep or hibernate.
