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?
