What is Synology advanced hibernation?

Phase 2: Advanced Hibernation/Deep Sleep is used when HDDs need to further reduce power consumption. Go to DSM > Control Panel > Hardware & Power > HDD Hibernation to enable advanced HDD hibernation.

What is hard drive hibernation?

During HDD hibernation, hard disks stop spinning, reducing power consumption and extending the lifespan of hard disks.

Does Synology go to sleep?

Deep Sleep for expansion units can be enabled through the paired Synology NAS server interface. On DX510, this function can be enabled only when DX510 is connected to a 12-series or newer Synology NAS model. USB HDDs connected to the Synology NAS power down after a period of inactivity.

Why does my Synology NAS not hibernate?

Your Synology NAS cannot hibernate if several concurrent processes require memory swap, where RAM capacity has been exceeded and HDDs are used temporarily for read/write operations.

Is Hibernate good for HDD?

Essentially, the decision to hibernate in HDD is a trade-off between power conservation and hard-disk performance drop over time. For those who have a solid state drive (SSD) laptop, however, hibernate mode has little negative impact. As it has no moving parts like a traditional HDD, nothing breaks.

Should I hibernate NAS?

Hibernating your drives is a great decision if you don’t require drive access all the time, but don’t fancy having the entire system shut down to save power. Note that some apps and services you run on the NAS will override these settings and not allow your HDDs to hibernate.

What are some examples of hibernation?

What does hibernation mode mean?

Hibernation is a mode in which a computer is turned off but saves its state to resume when it is turned on again. In effect, hibernation is similar to sleep mode: all the user’s open files, websites and data will reappear when the computer is turned on.

Should I leave my NAS on all the time?

Anyway, there’s no need to turn off the NAS at night from a hard drive lifespan perspective.. The hard drives are pretty much turned off during hard drive hibernation but the DSM system continues running..

Is hibernate the same as shutdown?

Hibernate mode is almost the same thing as fully shutting down your PC, except it saves your place in Windows to resume the next time you turn it on. Instead of saving to your RAM like sleep mode, it saves straight to your hard drive so that there’s no chance of losing anything if power is abruptly cut.

Is hibernate harmful?

Despite its energy-saving abilities, hibernate mode was previously believed to be damaging to hard disk performance over time. The verdict has somewhat changed in 2020, and today, you can use Hibernate mode much more casually without any negative impact.

How long should a Synology NAS last?

They live an average of three to five years. The correlation here is all on the inside. Servers and hard drives both contain vital moving parts that make them susceptible to failure. These failures can be attributed to kinetic energy, lubrication issues, and general wear over time.
