Standby uses battery to continually refresh the memory. Hibernation dumps the memory to disk and powers down. There is no battery consumption save whatever is needed to run the clock.

I have a laptop with broken battery than only runs when plugged-in and strangely, hibernation only works when i keep it plugged-in. if i hibernate, unplug, move it to another room, plug-in again then somehow it has to fully reboot again.
