Does this only affect laptops in sleep state?

I bought an HP Pavilion 15 with Intel 6200U (Skylake) processor a few weeks ago and dual-booted Windows 10 with Arch Linux. I almost never put my laptop to sleep and prefer shutting it down when it is not needed instead. PowerTOP tells me that I'm in pc2 state. Is it safe to use Linux (I use my laptop for around 6-8 hours a day), or should I stick with Windows until this is fixed?
