Is there any benefit to Modern Standby on a desktop PCs?

I’m building a new computer and wondering if I should take Modern Standby-compatible hardware under consideration.  Particularly the PSU, as my Z590 motherboard should already support it.

 

MS seems better targeted at laptops and tablets, right?  I’m trying to think of why I would want it on a desktop computer.  Is it less buggy for quick waking from sleep than the older sleep modes?

If you find one, let me know. I never put my desktop(s) to sleep, I fail to see the point.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Mine’s a bit buggy when it wakes from sleep; sometimes being a bit sluggish for a while afterwards.  I usually just do a full shut down, since it reboots quickly with an SSD.  The new build should be even faster.

 

It’s nice to save working progress sometimes with sleep mode vs shutdown.

I use hibernate. It's nice to have everything the way it was when it boots, and saves a lot of el electricity.

Is Hibernate better nowadays?  I've been disabling it first thing on every new build since years ago when it was recommended to do to lessen SSD wear.
