Win XP: Hibernate or Standby?

Standby is low-power usage. Put a machine into standby, disconnect the power and the machine will just simply load up again from a cold boot when you do switch it on again. It's only marginally better than just flicking the switch at the wall. Most machines go into standby by default if you leave them long enough, as its whole purpose is you wake it up by moving the mouse.
Not all devices like going into standby and not all devices work after a machine comes out of hibernation. Therefore depending on your hardware configuration there may be no benefit to either of these. A better solution may be to investigate why the machine takes an extended period to load.

If it's desktop, don't use any.
Hibernate or Standby?, Which is better?
They never work seamlessly.

Can you tell me what would be the best way to go about that? I have so many processes running and I am not sure what I should have at startup and what can be eliminated and only used when needed? Thanks.
