Where did Hibernation Option go in Windows 10?
Coming a long way from Windows XP and Windows 7, I had come to love the Hibernation Feature of Windows. It was a time consuming task to let Windows load every service from scratch on startup.
Compounded, if you needed to open Microsoft Office, there goes your 2 more minutes. During High School, where you have to move from lecture to lecture… or in any business scenario where you need to use laptop on the go.. It isn’t wise to let the grumpy Windows take your precious time on startup.
It was all good until Windows 7.. but where did the hibernation option go, from Windows 8.1 onward…?
Well, the Metro stuff and Microsoft boosting off their fast load time, I believe they buried the Hibernation option deep beneath the settings.
But what about the hassle of re-opening my working environment every time I start my Windows.. Plus the Optimized Sleep Mode does not preserve my battery for long?
Well.. I say.. Let’s re-enable the Hibernation Option 😀
Here is how you can enable Hibernate Mode in Windows 8.1 onward:
- Click on Battery in the icons tray in your task bar and click on More Power Options
- Open Control Panel and Search Power Settings
- Click on Choose What the Power Buttons Do links
- Enable Administrative Controls from the top link
- Scroll Down the page and enable Hibernation Option.
That’s it. You now have your Hibernation option in Windows 8.1 onward.
