Default Sleep vs Shutdown vs Hibernation

So I would like a list of the pros and cons of each way of "turning off" my Vista Laptop (Thought that is a definately important factor).

So I been always using shutdown as I found it was good to save power and keep the memory fresh each time at the cost of a little more time to start up.

So what would be the pros and cons of the 3 (Generally speaking)

Arrow Sleep Vs Shutdown

I put mine in sleep mode when I am away for a short time during the day. I find it easier to just power it up and continue where I left off or start something I need to do.

Instead of shutting it down for short times during the day, which takes longer to start up.

Now if I am going to be away for an extended time I will shut down the computer or laptop to save power and rest my computer/laptop.
