It's not bad for the computer, it just uses a lot of space on the hard drive to continue the session. Standby is probably the better option, but still consumes around about the same amount of electricty as if it was running fully. You can disable hibernating by doing:

Start > Control Panel > (Left pane: Switch to classic view) Power Options > Hibernate tab > UNTICK enable hibernation.
