So in this case if the laptop's asleep and the battery runs low, it will not hibernate and instead shut down improperly? – Karan Nov 21 '12 at 15:52
still hibernates overnight with a 80% full battery. – lang2 Nov 22 '12 at 2:16

You can change your power plan to go to standby when closing the laptop's lid, in Control Panel » Power Options.
