Just wanted to clear this off my brain

Putting computer in stand by has any side effects?? does it do any loss to the computer?

I used to put on stand by a lot on my old computer and after 1 yr and half it's battery died...

So just wondering.. does it actually kills your battery life??

Leave your inputs.. Thank you

With standby your data is saved in RAM, but your hard drive and monitor are shut off. While this conserves power, your battery is still be used to a lesser degree to maintain the data in RAM. This is ideal for situations where you are looking at short periods of time of being away from your computer and wish to resume quickly.

Hibernate your computer is shut off and the data is stored on the hard drive. While this is safer (in terms of less risk of data loss) and uses no battery power, it does take longer to reboot to your previous work.
