    Where is the problem?

    Hello, I installed Windows 8 on my computer these days and it turns out the power options do not work and my computer is put into hibernation every so often that is what happens? Thank you.

    Hi Ale, welcome to the Eight Forums.

    First thing to try is to run Windows System File Checker SFC with scan option. See this tutorial to learn how: SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    The SFC will check and repair native Windows system files. It sometimes needs to be run several times; if it after the scan tells you it could not repair all damaged files, reboot the PC and run it again. Quite often at least 3 scans are needed.

    After the last pass of SFC, reboot and check if the power options are there. If not, the next logical step I can think of is to do a system refresh: Refresh Windows 8

    If you do it, please read this information given in the beginning of the tutorial very carefully:
