Enabling Hibernation in Windows XP

Uncategorized No Comments »

I recently got hold of a Hewlett-Packard Mini Note 2133 but couldn’t get it to hibernate at first. I’m a huge fan of hibernation I’ve always used it because I think it makes sense to have the computer in a useable state as left more quickly.

Normally when its enabled there’s a hibernate tab to the Power Options Properties where you can enable and disable the feature. The tab only appears if the hibernation facility has been switched on and that is done with the following command.

  • Open the Command Prompt
    • Start > Run > “cmd” > OK
  • To Turn Hibernation On
    • powercfg.exe /H ON
  • To Turn Hibernation Off
    • powercfg.exe /H OFF

Now with hibernation turned on I’m a happy bunny again.
