    Hi Jordan,


    To disable Hibernation:


    At an elevated cmd prompt type - "powercfg -h off".


    To disable Sleep:


    1.    Open gpedit.msc and go to Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>System>Power Management>Sleep Settings.

    2.    Enable "Turn Off Hybrid Sleep (Plugged In)" and "Turn Off Hybrid Sleep (On Battery)"

    3.    Disable "Allow Standby States (S1-S3) when sleeping (Plugged In)" and "Allow Standby States (S1-S3) when sleeping (On Battery)"


    Hope it helps.
