I understand you would like to know what power state to use with the computer when it is not in use.
If you are not going to use the computer for an extended period of time you can just shut it down. If you are not going to use the computer for a few or several hours you can put it on sleep mode.
I found some articles online which talk more about what to do with the computer when it is not in use. I hope you find this information useful.
