    Is need to to initiate Hibernation in Windows Control Panel

    In windows 8, the Hibernation can not show on Power option menu. So if we want to click the hibernation option to need go into the Control Panel, then check the show Hibernation. Maybe the operation is need to do? Why the hibernation option does not show on the Power option menu directly?

    Hello Arvinliu,

    You might see if disabling and enabling hibernate again may toggle it to work again.

    If the aforementioned doesn't work, try the following:

    Power Options Menu - Add or Remove Sleep or Hibernate in Windows 8

    1. Open Control Panel
    2. Select Power Options
    3. Select 'Choose what the Power Button does' on the left
    4. Select ' Change settings that are currently unavailable'
    5. Make sure Hibernate is selected.

    You shouldn't need a restart.

    Hi Brink&Cailico,
    Thank you for your reply, I have known your meanings. But something I am confused, why the Hibernation option can not directly show on the Power menu?

    Hibernate should normally be there in the Power menu like below if enabled and selected as Calico posted above. Disabling and enabling hibernate may reset and fix this for you.
