Standby And hibernate options gone!

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Drain On Society, Mar 16, 2007.

  1. yesterday i threw my laptop on hibernate and did laundry and then came back
    and used it fine. the night went on and i updated vista because there were 3
    updates to install, so i did that around 11pm. i finally went to shut my
    laptop down at around 2 am (after i rebooted from the update an hour before)
    and found that standby and hibernate were gone from the options menu. i tried
    all this other stuff about going to the powe managment and whatnot, standby
    and hibernate are gone from those options too. all thats left is sleep snd
    shut down (along with switch user, lock, and log off). was there something in
    the update that caused this to happen?

    Could it be a Video Card issue? I know with some Video Cards the sleep and
    hibernate weren't an option. Did it change your video card driver?

    Standby has become Sleep and Hybrid Sleep, while Hibernate is still available
    but less used now since Hybrid sleep is a combo of Hibernate & sleep--except
    it is still recommended for notebooks. You control these in Power Options,
    power schemes, 'Change advanced settings' in each scheme. You can restore
    Hibernate there. Look at Help in Power Options for the full info on the new
    power settings. Try the Power Saver scheme and adjust advanced settings to
    your preference.
