How to Enable or Disable Hibernation in Windows 7 ?

Enabling or
“ Hibernate”
option in
Windows 7
or Vista is
not as
simple as it
used to be in Windows XP. For
Windows 7 a different approach
has to be followed to accomplish
the same job. In this post you will
find how to enable or disable the
Hibernate option in Windows 7.
Hibernation is a power saving
option which was designed
primarily for laptops. Unlike “sleep
mode” which puts the open
documents and files into the
memory, hibernation puts all the
open files and documents on to the
hard disk and shuts down the
computer without drawing even a
small amount of power. Thus
hibernation becomes an excellent
way to save power and resume
Windows back to the state where it
was left off. If you really want to
use this feature on Windows 7 then
you need to enable this option. This
can be done as follows.
1. Open the Command Prompt with
“ Administrator rights”. To do so,
type cmd in Start menu and
then hit Ctrl+Shift+Enter.
2. Now type the following
command in the command prompt
and hit Enter.
powercfg /hibernate on
3. Type exit and hit Enter to close
the Command Prompt. Now you
should see the “Hibernate” option
in the Start menu. If not then
perform the following steps.
A. Type Power Options in the Start
menu and hit Enter.
B. In the left pane, open the link
labeled “Change when the
computer sleeps” and then open
the link “Change advanced power
Now a small window will pop-up as
shown below:

C. Now expand the Sleep tree and
turn off Allow Hybrid Sleep as
shown in the above screenshot.
D. Now you should see the
Hibernate option in the Start menu.
