Pc Low

What are the disadvantages of letting your pc on sleep mode?

Hi,
I prefer to let my pc stay on sleep mode in the night or when i don't use it instead of turning it off, so it's turns on quicker.

But are there disadvantes? Like, does it still use power on sleep mode? How much?
And can it be harmful for your pc to always let it stay like this?

There are 2 types of sleep/standby modes - S1 & S3

In the first case, the computer will enter sleep mode but it will be running in the background. So when you hit a key or shake the mouse it resumes soon.

So in this case the computer consumes power continuously and all the devices are in on... So they are heated continuously developing a low performance.

Simply, like when you have not slept for 2 days and still you are working in the office how would you feel? You can do work, but not effectively.

The second mode is that when you put your sleep mode to S3 sleep mode, it actually shuts down everything and when you hit the power it resumes. This is better as it allows all devices to be in rest. Similar to hibernate, but not hibernate!

This is like working in office after a long day sleep...You feel fresh.
