Put the computer to sleep

When I go into Power options in the control panel it says "Chage plan settings" so I turn off my display after one hour and that's OK. Then it says "Put the computer to sleep" from 1 minute to 5 hours so what does that mean?

This is a great explanation about sleep mode:
Sleep and hibernation: frequently asked questions

Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player—the computer immediately stops what it’s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.

Thanks I tried it for one minute and it works fine. I put the time on sleep mode for 2 hours in case I forget to put it in sleep mode at night.
