Solved!

Missing HIbernation Power Option - {SOLVED}

HP Recommended
HP 570-p016na)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HI there,

I have not8iced that my Desktop doesn't have the HIBERNATION option.

 

I have gone all the way back to

Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\System Settings

where I should see all options for powering off and all I have is Sleep and Lock.

And the options for when i touch the power button are: Do Nothing; Sleep, Shut Down, Turn off the display.

 

I would be happy with Sleep as an option, but my Fans and USB still stay alive.

 

Any suggestions on where to find this missing option.

It used to work, I'm sure of that as my machine would go quiet and my USB peripheral would turn off too.

 

Any Help please? Thanks

@kuztardd It may have been turned off in the post to save additional space on your device,

Hibernate option is missing from the Power Options in the Control Panel? Did you install driver updates but still couldn’t get the Hibernate option back? Hibernate is one of the power saving modes that saves your current system state to hard drive, then power off the system. When you start the PC, it restores that state, letting you resume from where you left off.

  1. Click the Cortana Search box on your taskbar, type cmd, right click on the Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

  2. Once the Command Prompt is launched, type in the following command to enable the Hibernate feature.
