  • On Windows 8.1 Sleep button or option is disabled but when i close the lid it's not going on hibernate and when i press power button it's not going on hibernate.

    Please see the client side screen shots.

  • Hi,

    To enforce the settings, we should configure them under Computer Configuration – Policies – Administrative Templates – System – Power Management.

    Detailed settings are similar as Rob said:

    Disable Sleep mode:
    Disable policy: Allow standby states(S1-S3) when sleeping (Plugged in/ on battery).

    Enable Hibernate time out:
    Enable policy: Specify the system hibernate timeout (plugged in/on battery).

    Change the power button action.
    Similar as Rob said, but depends on your needs.


    If there is anything else we can do for you, please feel free to let us know.

    Best Regards,

    William

  • Apologies for not replying.

    The Policy is successfully applied but any action of hibernate lid close or power button the drives remain unlock and the above policy is not helping for the password requirement after hibernate.
