    Sleepmode turns off some of the things working in your computer, but it leaves it on enough to be able to start up quickly again. This is not a good mode because it still wastes alot of energy, and many people get errors coming out of sleepmode because of the way their windows may work. Instead of sleepmode, try hibernating [although that has reported errors too]. It turns off your computer, but saves some data you need to use later.

    Turn off display basically means it will power down your monitor into a “sleepmode”. It’ll come on when you move your mouse or something. It is better than using a screen saver because it consumes less energy, but at the same time will turn back on just as fast.

    Screen savers are also a waste of electricity now and are not needed beyond amusement. They were first used to prevent screen-burn [you don’t need to know what that is] but like i said, are now for amusement.

    If anything, just turn off your computer when you know you won’t be using it. If you are, but will be away for a few minutes, switch off the monitor manually.

    Turn off display is a timing you can use to enable the computer to turn off the monitor automatically if not used for a certain period. The monitor goes off but the computer keeps running. Its not the same as a screensaver.

    Sleep mode is when a computer “dozes off” into a state where it uses less power. The monitor also goes off. You can wake it up by pressing the keys on your keyboard.

    When the monitor says “the computer is on sleep mode…” it means the monitor did not receive any signal although it is connected. If the light on the power button is blinking, then it is in sleep mode. Restart the system if necessary. If not, the system is working but the display connection is not properly connected: Disconnect and reconnect the cable or test with a different monitor/LCD display. Restart the system if necessary. Good luck!

    The monitor itself takes more power in a Computer. ranging from 30 watts to 400 watts. The sleep mode saves the power. It is the software control for the monitor. U can adjust the details from the desktop – properties – display settings – screen saver – power. U can also adjust the time to go for sleep mode there.

    Sleep mode saves power. In this mode all openl open documents and programs are saved and allows the computer to quickly resume full-power operation when you want to start working again. Think about you pausing your TV or DVD player.Sleep mode is like that. The computer immediately stops what it’s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.
