The Differences Between Sleep and Screen Timeout

A sleeping computer may appear visually identical to a laptop that is up but without a display. These are two distinct entities.

This implies that the time your computer waits before shutting off the display may differ from the time it remains before going to sleep. Although some functions are disabled to save power, a computer in sleep mode is only in a low-power state, so it isn't completely off (all your open programmes and files remain open).

The laptop itself is unaffected whenever the display is turned off; the only thing changing is that the monitor turns black, which could be done to save energy or to keep the room from being overly bright.
