Standby or Hibernate?

I'm just curious. I tried Hibernate a few times and didn't care for it. Standby seems a lot faster.

For the short term [when still in the house] 'standby' is great as the computer comes back to life much quicker. However for longer terms [when I am gone for several hours or more], my preference is to put the system in hibernate. Because the contents of the system memory are written to the hard drive it gives me piece of mind knowing that even if the power goes out while I am gone, everything will be fine while I turn the system back on.

Having said all that, it works great on my laptop, both standby and hibernate function as they are supposed to. However my desktop is a different story. The software for my printer can not handle the hibernation mode and forces me to have to do a hard reset of the system after turning it back on from hibernating. Need to spend some more time to see if I can actually resolve this problem.
