Enable Hibernation in Windows 8

One of the coolest feature in Windows 8 is that it enables you to Hibernate your computer after enabling the Hyper-V feature.

One of the questions I get most of the time is that the hibernation option is missing from the power menu

 1

and how do we get Hibernation option to the power menu

In order to do that,

  • Open Power Options

2 

  • Click on “Choose what the power buttons do”

3

  • Click on “Change Settings that are currently unavailable”

4 

  • Enable the Hibernate Option and Click Save Changes.

If you are unable to see Hibernate Option, Open Command prompt in Admin mode and type

Powercfg –H ON

  • Now you will be able to see the Hibernate option from the Power menu
