I'm using a Macbook Pro late 2011, it has been upgraded with a SSD and 8GB RAM. I was curious as to whether putting my mac on hibernation would extend it's life or I should just shut it down every night like a regular person...
**Problem: **I have to use this for an another 4-5 years. **Usage: ** for like 3-4 days of a week, it runs for about 10hrs each day, it is mostly sitting idle.
I have a lot of stuff opened up and I use "Reopen windows when logging back". I just feel like the whole shutting down and booting back up puts excess stress on my CPU.
The CPU usages all the way to the top for like 5 secs on booting up. Would it be better for my CPU's life if I just used hibernation instead?
I could use this command I figure:
sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 25
