If I choose eiher option 1 or 2, I understand that the hiperfil.sys file will be deleted. If after doing so I want to restore the Hibernate function, will I be able to do it without that file? If so, how? Thanks

Hello Antares,

Whenever you enable hibernate the hiberfil.sys file it will automatically be recreated. Hibernate cannot function without it since that is where everything is stored at on the HDD when the computer goes into hibernation.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Shawn, I used option 2 and now I have 1.5Gb more free space, but when I go to step 4 there's no "Hibernate after" option, I only see "Sleep after" and "Allow wake timers", so I'm unable to proceed with steps 4 through 7. So now if I ever want to re enable hibernation, how do I proceed? Thanks.

Antares,

That would be correct. When you disable hibernat in the command prompt in OPTION TWO, it also removes the Allow hybrid sleep and Hibernate after power options.

You would just need to use OPTION ONE to enable hiberate again, and to get these power options back.

Thanks.

Hello Stanley, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I suppose the easiest way to do this would be to set the settings in another power plan than you are using now to have sleep and hibernate turned off. This way you will have your current power plan with sleep and hibernate turned on, and another one with sleep and hibernate turned off. Next, create a shortcut for each power plan using the tutorial below so that you can click on the shortcut to switch between using the power plan you want at will. These shortcuts can also be pinned to the taskbar to make using them even easier.

Hope this helps,
