    How to enable Hybernate


    Hello All,

    My system has no hibernation option as in the snip

    Click image for larger version

    Trying command promt : powercfg -h on shows the error massage

    Trying creating hibernate shortcut using “C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0” and reattempt command “powercfg -h on ” represent the same error

    Click image for larger version

    Try pressing on Hybernate shortcut , the system is hibernate yet the power button displays the flash light.


    Checking to power option , there is no hibernate option displayed after expanding “sleep”
