After I read this post, I have a couple of questions. Would the hibernate under the normal shut down options use the same wattage as the hibernation (ACPI S4) you described? Are they the same power down mode or is it a totally different?

ACPI S4, Suspend To Disk, and Hibernate are all just different names for exactly the same thing, that is they are the same system state. Scott.

In windows 7 power options there is a "change what power buttons do" if i set the power button to hibernate will it have the same effect as what your describing?

Is never shutting down a PC completely a bad idea when it doesn't have any RAID- or Enterprise-class hard drives?
