Hibernation on a HP (Hewlett Packard) laptop is a feature that enables you to conserve battery power. When you enable this feature, your computer powers down when you are not using it. In hibernate mode, the current state of the operating system is saved to the hard disk so that you do not loose vital information. Getting out of hibernation mode is simple. If you are no longer interested in using the hibernation feature, you can also disable it.
