Why can't you install Windows 10 Creators Update on your old Atom netbook? Because Intel stopped loving you

not if hibernate eats your battery life

What? I think you are confusing 'hibernate' mode with 'sleep/standby' mode.

With hibernate memory is copied to disk ( c:\hiberfil.sys - although Win10 does things slightly differently) and system powers off.

power off (when not in use) for laptops. desktops stay on 7/24

Not sure of your logic behind this rule, but then my desktop is connected to a UPS and hence gets treated like a laptop.
