You could use keyboard remapping software like SharpKeys then map a key to do shutdown /h /t 0

That will force an immediate Hibernate.

There are many other keyboard remappers, that's just the first one I found via a Google search.

Hello Mil0s,

If that fails, here's a hibernation shortcut that you could use and assign a keyboard shortcut to if you like as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Glad you got it.

How does that give you a one click Hibernate though?
