How to Disable or Enable Hibernation Mode in Windows 7 or Vista?

Enabling and Disabling “HIBERNATE” mode in windows 7 or vista is not simple as it use to be in windows XP as windows 7 as well as windows VistaHibernation in Windows 7 have some different ways and approaches to do so, here I mean to disable or enable hibernation in windows 7.
In windows 7 hibernation mode mostly takes about 700MB of your hard memory just to save Backups or some of running programs which would be shut forcefully, just to
save some of our data it restarts that program from where it was forced to shut
(reasons, could be like cut in power supply).

Hibernation is a power saving option which was designed primarily for laptops. Unlike “sleep mode” which puts the open documents and files into the memory, hibernation puts all the open files and documents on to the hard disk and shuts down the computer without drawing even a small amount of power. Thus hibernation becomes an excellent way to save power and resume Windows back to the state where it was left off. If you really want to use this feature on Windows 7 then you need to enable this option. This can be done as follows.
  1. Open the Command Prompt with “Administrator rights”. To do so, type cmd in Start menu and then hit Ctrl+Shift+Enter.
  2. Now type the following command in the command prompt and hit Enter.
    powercfg /hibernate on.
  3. Type exit and hit Enter to close the Command Prompt. Now you should see the “Hibernate” option in the Start menu. If not then perform the following steps.
  • Type Power Options in the Start menu and hit Enter.
  • In the left pane, open the link labeled “Change when the computer sleeps” and then open the link “Change advanced power settings”.
After doing above steps it will show a pop window like I have posted below:-

  • Now you should see the Hibernate option in the Start menu.
