Windows 7: Hibernation Disappears

03 Jun 2012   #11
Not Myself

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

1. Computer went to sleep as scheduled last night.

2. Computer woke up, ran scheduled SuperAntispyware at 0445 this morning, as scheduled.

3. Computer went back to sleep after step 2, as it was supposed to, and was asleep when I got to the computer room around 0500 this morning.

4. A few minutes ago, I checked the Start Button/Shutdown area, where Hibernation was not showing.

5. After running powercfg - h on , hibernation reappeared without my having rebooted the computer.

Thus, once again, I can only ask if anyone has any idea as to what might be removing hiberfil.sys from my computer, and, if so, what I might do to stop this from recurring.


Fifty-four minutes after posting this message, hiberfil.sys is gone again. I've made no changes to the computer, just done some on-line message reading. Hibernation was working perhaps thirty minutes ago. This problem started perhaps two months ago at most.
