I knew that much, but from that GPO explanation, it sounds like there’s a difference beyond that. That’s why I (perhaps poorly) tried to clarify with “hardware difference”, like a trickle of power or something I wasn’t aware of.

From my understanding, the only difference between sleep and hibernate is that sleep holds the current system’s state in RAM with a trickle of power and hibernate writes the current system state to the hard drive and then powers off. However, as you have noted, this situation seems to prove that my (our) understanding is flawed since there obviously must be some hook that the hibernated system state leaves behind somewhere in order for it to be awoken at a later time. Anyone have any insight into this situation?
