(Quick Tip) How to make Hibernation option available and unavailable for Windows 7

Hibernation is a power-saving feature designed primarily for tablets and mini-laptops. Sleep puts your work and settings in the memory, while hibernation puts your current state such as open documents and sotwares to your hard disk, and afterwards turns off your computer.

Of all the power-saving feature in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power. Here’s how to make the feature active or inactive.

Enabling the Missing Hibernate option

C:\Windows\system32>powercfg /hibernate on

Disable the Hibernate option

C:\Windows\system32>powercfg /hibernate off

Other definitions

Hybrid sleep is designed for desktop computers and it is the combination of sleep and hibernate — it saves the current state such as any open documents and programs into the memory and to your hard disk, and afterwards saves your computer into a low-power state so that you can quickly resume to your work. Hybrid sleep is by default – turned on for desktop computers.

For the command powercfg.cpl,1 or Advanced Power Option settings


Technical details

Your copy of Windows uses the Hiberfil.sys file to store a copy of the memory into the hard disk when the hybrid sleep setting is turned on. If this file is not present, the computer hibernation is inactive or disabled.
