Hibernation missing

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by spencertaylor, Feb 24, 2007.

  1. I am running Vista Home Premium on a home built PC. The motherboard is
    an MSI nForce3-based board (model # 7025) an Athlon 3500+, 2 GB DDR,
    very high quality hard drives, an XFX 6800 Ultra, and if anyone needs
    more info, I can give it to them.

    Here is the thing, Hibernation is no longer an option for me. I mean
    that Vista removed it. It was there when I first installed Vista, but
    now I only have Sleep as an option, which does not turn the PC off.

    Has anyone run into this problem? Can someone please help me get
    Hibernation back?

  3. Yes, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Right click Command Prompt, and
    select "Run As Administrator", then type

    powercfg -H on

    And press enter

    Please tell me if this works for you.



    Have a nice day,

    I think we need to specify the version of Vista we are using.

    Some of the commands are not recognized in all version of Vista. "powercfg"
    is not recognized in Vista Home Premium.
