Actually, the sleep mode of Windows 10 is what I needed, though I made a mistake previously, I put the pc in sleep mode, disabled the power, enabled the power and then pressed the Power on button, which basically started it up completely, this is why I thought the sleep mode didn't work properly.
I hate having to open up all programs and folders again after shutting windows down, this is why I would like to use the hibernate-mode to save energy during the night, but to immediately start working the next morning. Sadly, my current Win 10 Pro installation doesn't have the hibernate option. I tried activating it through the energy settings, but the option isn't available.
Anybody has experience with this?
