Sleep mode is an energy-saving mode of operation in which all unnecessary components are terminated. Many battery-operated devices, such as notebook computers, support a sleep mode. When a notebook computer goes into sleep mode, it shuts down the display screen and disk drive. Once awakened, the computer returns to its former operating status.
