No hibernation option in Start Menu ?

Recently I've disabled hibernation ( powercfg -h off in cmd ) on my computer coz I'm using an SSD and I wanted more space.

Now I wanna have it back ( powercfg -h on in cmd ) but the option to hibernate does not show up in start menu.

I can choose to hibernate after clicking power button in power options and hibernation itself is working.

Yes - I used option one. Like I said - hibernation itself is working.

I was trying a couple of times enabling/disabling it.



edit: Maybe it's power plan related ? I'm currently on "Always on" - I might try to change it later.

When "Hybrid Sleep" is enabled, if the machine goes to "Sleep/Suspend", it will save the computers state to memory like "Hibernate", but is still in the low power mode of "Sleep/Suspend", so in the event of a power outage the computer will still be able to recover to it's former state. Disabling "Hybrid Sleep" will allow you to have both "Sleep/Suspend" and "Hibernate" as separate properties on your shutdown button.
Just read that - gonna check it too ^^

Hello Komoornik,

You may still have Hybrid turned on.

The Hibernate option will not be listed in the Start Menu unless you enable hibernate and have turned off the Hybrid sleep option in the Power Plan Settings.

Power Button - Start Menu

Hope this helps,
Shawn
