    I was experimenting with copying large files and over did it

    so my os removed the hibernate file to add disc space

    now I can't find the option to give me hibernate back, it's not anywhere in the power options that I can find

    could someone tell me where that applet is and how to turn hibernate back on?

    much appreciate it

    I am guessing I have to log on as the administrator?...where do I go from there

    1. Click the Start button.

    2. Select All Programs.

    3. Select Accessories.

    4. Right-click on Command Prompt.

    5. Select Run as Administrator.

    6. When the UAC prompt appears, click Continue.

    7. Type powercfg /hibernate on and press Enter on your keyboard.

    8. Close the Command Prompt window.


    hope it works :)

    I just did it, didn't reboot yet, won't do that for a few days or the next time I blue screen


    quick question, is there a command to the run box that brings cmd as administrator?

    does just using cmd in run get you to command as administrator?

    so ya, you don't need to reboot for the cmd prompt to be activated, can take the reboot part out of the instructions
