CAUTION:
Several well-known vulnerabilities exist when a computer is in the Sleep state. To prevent an
unauthorized user from accessing data on your computer, even encrypted data, HP recommends that you
always initiate Hibernation instead of Sleep anytime the computer will be out of your physical possession.
This practice is particularly important when you travel with your computer.
Using power-saving states
Sleep is enabled at the factory. When Sleep is initiated, the power lights blink and the screen clears. Your work
is saved to memory.
