Check in your power options that Hybrid sleep is OFF as this may prevent Hibernate from appearing

Hibernate - Enable or Disable

Hope This Helps,

Excellent. Glad to help

I've run into this before helping other friends on new systems, with the same default situation from vendor-provided Win7 systems that have "hybrid sleep : ON". That's how I discovered the solution.


(P.S. - I'm dsperber that you're quoting, not JK. But looking at the timing of our two essentially identical replies to you, it appears we both came to the same conclusion and solution for you within 1 minute of each other. Glad you got your issue resolved, which is the important thing.)

Maybe the "jk" was "just kidding" after he said nothing works.

You're absolutely right!!! I didn't even think of that!! I only saw that Josh Kingsbury (i.e. "shadowJK") had posted the same solution I did a minute later, and assumed that was the JK being referenced in the thank you... especially after HE (i.e. JK) thanked OP for thanking him!

All this "tweet talk" and abbreviations... can never really be sure I get it.

Anyway, thanks for straightening this all out for me. I now subscribe to your interpretation. Completely plausible.

We're all square, and the hibernation problem is solved.
