HIBERNATE – copies the contents of physical memory to hard drive and powers the PC off (after the PC is powered on again the system is restored to exactly the status it had before hibernating) (Windows 2000 - XP only)

TURN MONITOR OFF – turns monitor power off (by cutting off the video card signal). Monitor is powered on either on mouse movement or on pressing a key on keyboard.

PLEASE NOTE: Some older Windows 9x systems and Windows XP react on 'keyboard key released' event which would make the system power on the monitor right after it was powered off. To solve this MindIT! will wait for 1 second before turning monitor off after you have pressed the keyboard shortcut keys. This time is sufficient for a human being to release the pressed keys.
