    Computer in Stand-by question

    As the title says, this is a computer related question.
    One afternoon, i had 2 windows in my computer minimized, one was a folder(like a folder with anime episodes) and the other was a website i had opened.
    So, as i am watching tv laying on my bed, i let my 2 year old niece play around with the keys in the keyboard, idk what she did but she shut off my computer, or so it seemed.
    I looked at the power-light and it seemed it was off, since there was no light( when its on, the light is blue, when is in stand-by or sleep mode its yellow).
    At first i tried pressing keys, pressing and moving my mouse, no reaction, so it seemed like it was fully off, no sound from the cpu at all, and btw it is a desktop.
    So i press my turn on button, and a few seconds later, it only showed the windows loading screen for like 5 seconds it went all the way straight to how it was before my niece ever touched the computer, with my 2 windows minimized.
    How did she put it in a like super stand-by mode that seemed to have left the computer completely turned off???????

    The feature is called hibernate. You hold the shift key while in the shut down menu to have it displayed.

    All data is saved onto your hard drive and mainly your computer is shut down, normally this feature is used for people who have laptops.

    However Samus Aran is now some unknown low ranking military personal.

    the application [hibernate] is not completing because either

    [a] you do not have enough free space on your hard drive

    [b] memory is being maxed out
