How to Add or Remove "Hibernate after" in Power Options in Windows


information   Information
Hibernation is a power-saving state designed primarily for laptops. While sleep puts your work and settings in memory and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your computer. Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power. On a laptop, use hibernation when you know that you won't use your laptop for an extended period and won't have an opportunity to charge the battery during that time.

The Hibernate after power option allows users to specify how long in minutes the computer is inactive when on battery or plugged in before automatically hibernating.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the "Hibernate after" setting under Sleep in Power Options for all users in Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do the steps in this tutorial.

Note   Note
This could be handy if you wanted to set this how you wanted, then remove the setting to prevent other users from being able to change it in Power Options.
