    Resolved [RESOLVED] How to get the Hibernate Option in Windows 10.

    Hi,

    We just got a new Windows 10 laptop, but 'Hibernate' is missing from the Power Options.

    The suggestion to use the command prompt in administrator mode and use: powercfg /hibernate on, followed by: powercfg /h /type full, and a re-boot makes no difference.

    Just hoping one of you guys knows better.

    Settings > System > Power & sleep > Additional power settings > Choose what the power buttons do > Change settings that are currently unavailable

    Check the 'Hibernate - Show in Power menu.' item and click 'Save changes'.

    Thanks for the reply John.
    Sadly that doesn't work either, following your navigation I'm in a page which looks something like this:

    Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Power Options > System Settings



    Define power buttons and turn on password protection
    ꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷ

    Choose the power settings that you want for your computer. The changes you make to the settings on this page apply to all of your power plans.

    Power button and lid settings
    ꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷ

                                      On Battery   Plugged In
    When I press the power button:      Shut down    Sleep
    When I close the lid:                Shut down    Sleep
         
    Shutdown settings
    ꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷꟷ
    [✔]Turn on fast startup (Recommended)
    [✔]Sleep
    [ ]Lock
    There is no Hibernate option to check, just those three.

    Re: How to get the Hibernate Option in Windows 10.

    That's the right place. I would guess that whether Hibernate is available on that page is controlled by the Registry and, if it's not there, your PC manufacturer probably doesn't want it there for a reason. If you're determined to use it, I'd search for information about Hibernate and the Registry to see if you can find a key that will display it in that list first, then select it there to display it on the Power menu.

    Thanks John,

    I don't know what InstantGo is, but apparently hibernate is not an option on some PCs.

    Hi Topshot,

    Neither do I, I found that URL before, but I haven't found InstantGo on the web yet.

    Need to brush up on your google-fu? InstantGo It is easy to determine if your PC is configured with it.

    Oh...

    OK, Thanks Topshot, very interesting article.
    It looks like I can forget hibernate on this new machine then.

    Re: How to get the Hibernate Option in Windows 10.

    What do you have under the following Registry key?

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power

    One more thing to try. Start > Run > gpedit.msc (right-click to Run As Administrator when it appears in the search list)

    Navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > File Explorer and enable Show hibernate in the power options menu

    Does that mean that you do have InstantGo on your new machine?

    Under that address the only relevant thing I see is:

    HibernateEnabled REG_DWORD 0X00000001 (1)

    However, having read the URL supplied by Topshot it turns out that this laptop uses so little power when asleep the manufacturers reckon that hibernation isn't required.
    So, since SWIMBO and I are both unfamiliar with tracker pads and prefer an actual mouse, I've stopped the mouse from waking the machine, and disabled the requirement for a password after sleep.
    Closing the lid or pressing the power button put the machine into sleep mode if it's powered up, and close it down if not.

    Yes, I'd read about it but couldn't find any details about it... wrong search keywords again !
