    Hi,

    I'm using vista and accidentally cleaned up the hiberfil.sys using disk
    cleanup, and lost the option to hibernate on the shutdown menu. How do I get
    it back?

  2. How to disable and re-enable hibernation on a
    computer that is running Windows Vista:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/920730/en-us

    You cannot put the computer into hibernation
    after you run the Disk Cleanup wizard:

    The hybrid sleep feature and the hibernation feature
    in Windows Vista may become unavailable after you
    use the Disk Cleanup Tool:

  3. To resolve this problem in Windows Vista, run the powercfg -h on command at
    a command prompt to enable the hibernate feature and the hybrid sleep
    feature. To run this command, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Accessories.
    2. Right-click Command Prompt, click Run as administrator, type powercfg -h
    on, and then press ENTER.
