Enable Hibernate in Windows 10

Hibernate is a power-saving state designed primarily for laptops, and might not be available for all PCs. While sleep puts our work and settings in memory and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts our open documents and programs on our hard disk to the hiberfile (C:\hiberfil.sys), and then turns off our computer. Hibernate uses less power than sleep and when we start up the PC again, we’re back to where we left off. However, it is a bit slower than sleep mode. We can use hibernation when we won’t use our PC for an extended period of time.

We will use CMD to enable hibernate. We will run it as administrator and then enter the command: powercfg -h on

Run CMD as Administrator
Run CMD as Administrator
powercfg -h on
powercfg -h on

To disable hibernate, simply enter the command: powercfg -h off

You can now check your Power Options and choose to show the Hibernate option when shutting down our computer.
