You probably have a laptop with Windows 10 as the operating system. One of the issues that always generates concern in a laptop is the battery life. Although there are certain tips with which to try to make it last longer, there are times when we cannot charge the computer and the battery runs out. To avoid problems, we have certain options.

One way to put the computer to sleep, but with hardly spending the battery is hibernating. Therefore, we can choose the option to hibernate if we want to leave the computer unused for a while, until we can charge it again. We can even make Windows 10 automatically enter this mode when the battery is low.

It is an extremely useful option, which allows us a good management of the battery in the laptop. At the moment when the battery percentage is low, we can make Windows 10 automatically go into this hibernate mode. It allows us a minimum consumption during this time, which prevents it from running out until we can load it. This is something possible, which only requires certain adjustments on the computer.
