    No Hibernate


    It would appear that I have broken my WDP, I use a SSD so I turned off Hibernate using the command powercfg -h off
    this worked and I no longer have the option to hibernate, apart from that WDP works fine. I then recently read about WDP using Hibernate to speed up the boot time, so of course I wanted to try this and proceeded to turn Hibernate back on again using the powercfg -h on command, but this causes my windows to bluescreen.

    I researched this problem and found that the powercfg -h on does not work with WDP, see here;

    Does anyone know how I can turn Hibernate back on again?

    In elevated cmd, type "powercfg.exe /hibernate on", I found this here:How to disable and re-enable hibernation on a computer that is running Windows
    EDIT: Yes, you are right, it's not working.

    Hi Pooch,
    Since I changed the "Hibernate After" in Advanced Power Options to 15 mins while pligged in, it's working, HTH.

    Yep, you needed to double check the Power Plan Options for hibernate in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below as well. So far, it's just like it is in Windows 7.

    Strange Hibernate is definitely turned off

    When I try to turn it on using CMD it seems to work but my PC then locked up. After a hard switch off It has started again with Hibernate off. The last times I have tried this it blue screened.

    I am going to have a couple more attempts to see what happens.

    PS I have also tried the Hibernate shortcut, it just puts my PC to sleep

    PPS the Blue Screen message is Critical_Object_Termination
