    Hibernate shuts your system down completly, while Standy shuts down monitor etc. and put your system into a power saving mode. As to your second question, if you hibernate your computer you will definiatly lose your internet conection, but I'm not sure about standby

    You will lose internet connectivity with Standby as well.
