Default power options

What are a good set of power options for a desktop that is used only about
an hour a day in the morning?

I use the Balanced power option on my desktop. It is used for about a
hour in the morning and another hour at night.

Computers have sleep and hibernate options.

Hibernate saves the most power, and also saves the session.

Sleep (by itself) keeps the session in RAM - if the
power goes off, the session would be lost.

A thing called "Hybrid Sleep" combines the sleep and
hiberfile functions. It writes the session out to disk.
If the power fails, the image on the disk is used on
the next boot and nothing is lost. If the power stays
on the whole time, then in about five seconds the
"RAM" session comes back, and the disk drive image
is not consulted. So "Hybrid Sleep" is a robust solution
for saving power. And it can be automated, such that
if you don't move the mouse for ten minutes, the machine
goes to sleep on its own.

Sites like this, at the bottom of the web page are
"related tutorials" links, and you can find articles about
the various things to know about sleep and hibernate.

In this picture, you can see how to configure a
sleep setting. You could set the machine to sleep
after 1 hour of inactivity, for example.
