    Hello,

    Nice tutorial, however i miss one thing and i wonder: does turning off "hybrid sleep" affect power consumption anyhow ? I mean if PC is in sleep mode, does it need more or less power with "hybrid sleep" option off, or it doesn't matter?

    If anyone have any clue on this please drop a post.

    Because if it doesn't matters i'm going to get rid of hibernation file.

    Hello Exiled, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Hybrid allows you to have use both "Sleep" and "Hibernate" together. You could set your computer to say sleep in 10 minutes, then hibernate in 15 minutes. This is really useful for laptops to save power comsumption.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    So do i get it right?
    You first have to set up the minutes number for sleep in power management options, then same for hibernate, and when PC is in sleep mode, count down for hibernate starts?
    It confuses me a bit when you speak about 10min sleep and 15min hibernate. Does it mean after 10 minutes of user being inactive with mice or keyboard computer goes to sleep, and then after 5 minutes (15 for hibernate minus 10 for sleep) or after 25 minutes (15 for hibernate plus 10 for sleep) hibernates ?

    Thanks for your answer. :)

    Hibernation Does Not Work Win7HomePremium


    I used CMD Run as Administrator > powercfg.exe /hibernate on or powercfg /hibernate on

    This did not work.

    I found Enable hibernation on Windows and downloaded Microsoft Fix it 50462
    How to disable and re-enable hibernation on a computer that is running Windows

    This did not work.

    I searched all of Windows 7 folder for the file hiberfil.sys File Not Found

    I run Windows XP Pro (sp3), Vista (sp1), Windows 7 Pro and Hibernation Works. Not with Windows 7 Home Premium and if I put Home Premium in sleep mode and bring out of sleep, I am not connected to the Internet (Cable Modem) which as far as I can tell, Network & Sharing does not have an option to Repair Connection, as does XP. Vista or 7 Pro / 7 Home Premium has Troubleshoot Problems running Windows Network Diagnostics does not find a problem.

    I can place Windows 7 Pro into Hibernation or Sleep Mode and wake up just fine. The same of Vista and XP Pro.

    However, 7 Premium out of Sleep Mode does not re-connect to the Internet. I have to re-boot.

    Any suggestions are appreciated....Doc

    Hello Doc,

    The hiberfil.sys file would only be created when you put the computer to hibernate the 1st time after it was enabled.

    Is Windows 7 Home Premium on the same computer or different than the others?

    If different, then double check your BIOS settings to make sure that you have hibernate (S3) state enabled. The tutorial below can help show you what available sleep/hibernate states you have.

    Sleep States - See Available Sleep States


    I would recommend to create a new thread for the internet issue though to get the best help with it since it's not related to this tutorial.

    Hibernation Does Not Work Win7HomePremium


    Thanks Brink,

    I have (S3) state enabled, still will not Hibernate and I thought the subject of this Thread is "How to Enable or Disable Hibernate in Windows 7" which I cannot enable, so I thought someone could help with enabling, since everything I have tried does not work. I will see how to start a New Thread.

    And even at 63, I am always learning...I have been using PC's since 1983. However I did not know
    hiberfil.sys was not created until it was first created from a successful hibernation.

    Win7 Home Premium 64-bit runs on this PC my Acer, Win 7 Pro on an HP a1419h, Win XP Pro on a Gateway 400VTX Laptop, Compaq 5080US, & Fry's Custom Built (586), Win Home on 2 HP's 513n & a1217n and on a Vista HP dv6000z. I have a Dell 800mz, that runs DOS 6.22, Win98, Win2000, and a Compaq 4540, that runs Win98.

    Appreciate your time and suggestions, recommendations....Doc

    Doc,

    The new thread recommendation was only for the internet issue since it's not related to enabling or disabling hibernate. That's all.

    Just to clarify, when you say "This did not work", what does it do when you try to enable hibernate with these options?

    Also, what happens when you put your Windows 7 Home Premium into hibernate mode?
