Windows 10 hibernate missing free


Windows has several different power states like working, sleep, hibernate, etc. Each power state has its own uses. On some Windows desktops, the hibernate option will not appear. Follow the below steps to fix missing hibernate option on Windows desktop. Starting from Windows 8, Microsoft added a new feature called Hybrid Sleep. As the name suggests, Hybrid Sleep has the best of both worlds.

When you put your system into sleep mode, Windows copies the system state into both memory and the hard disk. This makes it so that even in the event of complete power loss, the system can restore the session when turned on, just like hibernate.

Since Hybrid Sleep does the same work as the Hibernate option, Microsoft chose to disable the Hibernate option to remove redundancy. Which simply means that Windows uses the traditional sleep mode.

If there is a complete power loss, the system state will be lost. In those situations, you need to manually enable the Hibernate option. The problem is, since the Hibernation feature is disabled, you will not see the Hibernate option in Power Settings.

So, you first need to enable the Hibernate option. Once enabled, you can add Hibernate option to the start menu for ease of use. First, open the start menu, search for cmd and select the Run as Administrator option appearing on the right panel.

You can also right-click and select Run as Administrator. In the command prompt window, execute the below command. This command will enable the hibernate option.

To make things easier, copy the below command and right-click inside the command prompt window to paste the command. Next, we need to set the hibernation mode to full. So, execute the below command to set hibernation to full.

Close the command prompt window and reboot Windows to make the changes take effect. That is it. The hibernate option is enabled and you should see it in the Control Panel. To add hibernate option to the start menu, follow the below steps.

Next, find Power Options and click on it. Here, click on the Choose what power buttons do link appearing on the left panel. In this window, click on the Change settings that are currently unavailable link.

Now, expand the Shutdown Settings section. Select the Hibernate checkbox and hit the Save Changes buttons. If you open the Start Menu and click on the Power icon , you will see the Hibernate option among other options like Shutdown, Restart, and Sleep. The same Hibernate option is also visible in the Power User menu. You will see the Hibernate option. If you are curious, see this Microsoft doc to find more about different Windows power states.
