    I believe the answer to that is No. In Hibernate, there is no power draw. WIth Standby, there is. Hibernate basically dumps/writes the contents of your ram to the Hard drive. Then, when you resume, it just loads those settings into your ram, and away you go. There is no power consumption.

    Standby, on the other hand, is much quicker to enter enter and resume from, because the computer keeps the information in your ram. It is never written to the hard drive, so it doesn't need to write to the hd, or read and write it into the ram when you resume, HOWEVER, it needs a small voltage/amperage to keep the info in the memory. So, Standby could run your battery down, but, with a startup/shutdown controlle,r most will disconnect the computer from the battery if the battery reaches a preset level. However, if it does that, then obviously, the computer will lose the standby, and you will be forced to reboot.
