clip_image002 I used the Disk Cleanup Tool in Windows Vista, and now the hybrid sleep feature and the hibernation feature are unavailable

clip_image002 How do I enable hibernation on my Windows Vista-based computer?

We just released an improved Fix it solution. This Fix it replaces the Enable Hibernate and Hybrid Sleep Feature and runs "powercfg -h on” after confirming there is adequate disk space on the system drive to enable the hibernation file.

  • the command powercfg -h on worked last time for me perfectly and i had the hibernation option available straight away. but this time it didn't work. in power settings hiberbate option is set to "on" as well and i have all default settings for "hp recommended" power option. but still there is no "hibertate" option in start menu.

  • Love it!  Thanks for the work.

  • It doesn't work on my computer. I don't know why. And I also try the "Change advance power settings", and there are no "Allow hybrid sleep" option under the "sleep and "Hibernate" under the "Sleep button action" at all.

    I have send a email to fix4me, see if anyone can solve my problem. Anyway, thanks a lot.

  • It don't work for me either,

    no Hibernate or sleep in the power off menu
