    Interesting. I see Sleep, Restart & Shutdown.

    In the Power Options, under "Choose what the power button does" there is an option I found to show/hide the Sleep option in the Power Menu. I don't see anything about Hibernate but imagine that's somewhere in the Power Options as well.

    Hello Bruce,

    You may just need to enable hibernate (if supported by your motherboard) before it will be available in "Choose what the power button does".

    Windows 8.1 'Ultimate' RTM 64 bit (Pro/WMC).


    I'm getting it, not a problem at all.

    That's on a clean, standalone setup. I didn't change any related settings.


    Wenda.

    Hi there
    just change the keyboard / input language to English - UK then it should be just fine -- When I installed W8 I never had English UK as an option - works fine with UK keyboard (and Icelandic -- added Icelandic Language pack afterwards.

    Cheers

    Clean install on a separate partition is much better than upgrade, it's quite nice, I like the speed of the system, more stable, I need to tidy up my hard drive but too tired to do anything after many installs and uninstalls

    I thought Win 8 was already fast, but year the update seems to have made it slightly faster. I've got mine installed in VM Ware but find I'm plying with it a lot more now that the update is here. I already have a Win 8 laptop, but didn't want to install the update on it yet.

    Any it looks like I'll be upgrading my Win 7 main system with 8 once the 8.1 final is released. Kind of getting use to 8 now that I use my laptop quite a bit. The update just made things a little better now.

    Hey Simon,

    Did you move your user profile or folders to another location for why it's folders are not showing in your "This PC" window?

    I liked the user folders showing in "This Computer", but that's quite interesting ! What have you done ?

Greetings, I currently have Windows 8 Release Preview, it is my main OS. I have many programs,files,settings,etc. My question is when the final version of Windows 8 comes out will I be able to upgrade to that version from my current version (Windows 8 Release Preview). What I mean by upgrade...
I kind-of like Windows 8, but do you?
My sound used to work in the consumer preview fine but since I upgraded to the Release Preview I need the volume max and headphones in to hear anything. Any help appreciated. If more info is needed just ask.
