how to enable hibernate in windows 7 x86 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    hibernate feature is not enabled on my system.

    "hibernat after" and "Allow Hybrid Sleep" does not exist in the below directory:
    Power Options>Sleep

    I when typed "powercfg /hibernate on" OR "powercfg -h on" in administrator CMD, Show below message:
    Hibernation failed with the following error: The request is not supported.
    The following items are preventing hibernation on this system.
    An internal system component has disabled hibernation.

    I when typed "Shutdown /h" OR "Shutdown -h" in administrator CMD, Show below message:
    Hibernation is not enabled on this system. You must enable hibernation in order
    to use the -h option.

    hiberfil.sys file does not exist in root windows drive.

    Please Help me

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    you cannot use hibernation if booting from VHD also you will need hardware that support the required standards (modern hardware does) and have up-to-date drivers

    you could force hibernation to on by setting key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentCongtrolSet\Control\Power\HibernateEnabled to 1
