    Hi there
    So I'm having some trouble with definitions related to sleep, hibernating, connected stand-by and the like.

    Can someone please explain what is sleep and when it occurs? Same for connected standby, and any other power states.

    I've read the MS blurb on them and it seemed contradictory.

    I thought anytime I pressed the power button I was sending the unit to "sleep", but now I wonder if I'm entering "connected standby"?

    Michael

    In the Surface Pro 3, Sleep = Connected Standby.

    Pressing the power button sends this unit to Sleep.
