Lightbulb Imac hibernate and unplug?

Hi,

Its is possible to put the new imac on hibernation and unplug the powerd cord so I can move it to other place without turn it off and resume my work later ?

I come from windows where that is possible but I dont know if MacOS "sleep"is safe for unplug power

thanks

No, as the iMac has no battery, as soon as you unplug it, it shuts down.

Hes right also would even if it did like windows why would u not turn it off to move it since that would be safer anyways since desktops are not suppose to be unplugged like a laptop
