    Hibernation Issue - file not deleted


    Checked out your ideas on "disabling" Hibernation and those all check off, but still have the system file for it eating up over 2 GB's.

    The Windows Clean-up Program is a total loser and has been since MS came out with it. It won't delete many files that clog up your harddrive and continually build up over time in the Local Settings / Temp and even in the Windows / Temp folders.

    In my opinion - very useless product until MS can create one that truly will find those files and delete them.

    I also don't have the button on Clean-up in the lower left that you have. Maybe an option not in Win7 Home.

    Hello Tlswift, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    If you do METHOD ONE in this tutorial, it will also delete the hiberfil.sys file when you disable hibernation.

    Disk Cleanup is ok, but you might take a look at CCleaner. It's great at cleaning up junk files.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Hibernation


    Thanks Shawn.

    I've used CCLeaner before with mixed results. I was not aware that is was good to go for WIN7!

    I usually just go in manually and delete all the Temps files I can at the time - it is easier and sometimes CCLeaner can be overly aggressive and delete files that it shouldn't.

    If MS is going to offer maintenance programs like Defrag and Cleaner - then make them industrial products - not some wimped out version that is mostly useless.

    They did that with Windows Defender. Took a very good product and turned it into crapola.

    I want hibernate as an option on the Shutdown menu on a desktop. I ran the enable command and still don't see it. Is hibernate even an option for desktops or is it only available on laptops? I thought it could be enabled via registry change. (After only a few days I love Win7, so glad I skipped Vista!)

    Hello Joeb, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    You should have Hibernate in your Start Menu arrow menu here:
    Hibernate - Enable or Disable-start_menu.jpg
    ...and when you press ALT+F4 after clicking on the desktop.
    Hibernate - Enable or Disable-alt-f4.jpg
    You might also find this hibernate shortcut useful. You can pin or use it anywhere it Windows 7.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    No....


    Joeb....you won't have "Hibernate" as an option listed on your Shutdown button unless in the Power Plan properties you have the "Allow Hybrid Sleep" setting to "Off". 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.

    Hello Pat, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    If you are seeing that instead, then you are not in a elevated command prompt. Double check to make sure that when you right click on the command prompt shortcut, you click on "Run as administrator". Are you logged in a administrator account?

    Hope this helps,
