So far, I'm putting it into hibernate state overnight, but it takes way too much time to resume. Probably because of all the installed software and two virtual machines I'm constantly running on my desktop PC, it takes dozens times longer to fully resume from hibernation than from sleep state.
It's a desktop computer so I don't care about power consumption and I've already got an uninterruptible power supply to protect it from possible power outages.
My question concerns more the safety of the RAM and motherboard. As far as I know, RAM should be provided with power all the time while in sleep mode. So the memory modules remain heated all this time, right?
So, what are potential problems with keeping a desktop computer in sleep state overnight that you guys can think of? After all, sleep mode was designed for short-time suspensions.
In case if it matters, my motherboard is Asus P8P67.
