Win 7 Hibernate

Just wondering if you guys have noticed if hibernate option is missing on some builds of Win 7?? My colleage tried to tell me that she doesnt have the option to go to hibernate from start menu only sleep shutdown etc...

Has anyone noticed this?

Hello Buckeye,

She may not have hibernate selected in her Power Plan settings, or she may have disabled hibernation by mistake.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

so as far as you know its not turned off by default or something? I read somewhere that MS had the option removed for units with less then 4gb of memory due to time it took to resume something about the pagefile.

There were plenty of hibernating issues with vista from what I heard. I know that mine doesn't work... They could have scrapped it for the beta or totally.

I have hibernate set on my x86 Win7. Works great. Your friend needs to check the power plan. There is also a cmd to turn it back on. You have to run cmd as administrator.

powercfg /hibernate on

PS: Hibernate works great in Vista as well.

I discovered that disabling "Hybrid sleep" on advanced power options will add hibernation to the shutdown menu.

On a side note: My computer can only hibernate once, after that, if it has already hibernated once before during the session, it goes into a strange state where the power is never turned off, but I can't return to windows.

My notebook does the same thing. After the first time I hibernate, it turns the screen off and doesnt do anything. When I touch my keyboard, it makes that "ding" sound. Anyone have any ideas?
