    Apple supports three main types of sleep modes for desktops and portables. The three modes are Sleep, Hibernation, and Safe Sleep, and they each work slightly differently.


    Sleep:
    The Mac's RAM is left powered on while it's sleeping. This allows the Mac to wake up very quickly, because
    there's no need to load anything from the hard drive. This is the default sleep mode for desktop Macs.


    Hibernation: In this mode, the contents of RAM are copied to your hard drive before the Mac enters sleep.

    Safe Sleep: The RAM contents are copied to the hard drive before the Mac enters sleep, but the RAM remains powered
    while the Mac is sleeping.


    To change the modes,open the terminal and then type the following commands-

    1) To Put your Mac in sleep mode --> sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3

    2) Put your Mac in hibernate mode -->sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 25

    I hope I have answered all your doubts.
    It was a pleasure answering your queries.
    Hope that you'll come up with some more challenging queries!
    Till then,take care.
    Bye!
