[CoLoCo] Odd load for sleep mode

I could see the uptime increasing in Sleep but not in hibernate.
Seeing as sleeping just spins down the drives and temp stores the
memory. It however is still alive and running on a small amount of
power. Where Hibernate actual powers down everything. If I understand
the difference its how fast are you looking to turn your computer back
on vs how much power you need to save, or incase of laptops if your
moving from one location to another.

As for the load right after I can see that being it working on pulling
everything of the hard drive and sticking it back in memory.

Correct me if I'm wrong on my assumptions of the differences between
Hibernate and Sleep.
