Add hibernate to windows 10

How to Enable Hibernate Mode in Windows 10

By default, when you open the Start menu in Windows 10 and select the power button, there is no Hibernate mode. Here’s how to enable it.

The Start menu returns to Windows 10, and contains a power button in clear view, unlike Windows 8 which had the power button (and other features) hidden. While this will make the switch for Windows 7 users easier, one feature that is missing is Hibernate mode. Here’s how to enable it.

By default, when you open the Start menu in Windows 10 and select the power button, there is no Hibernate mode.

Enable Hibernate in Windows 10

To enable Hibernate in Windows 10, type: power options into the Search box and hit Enter, or select the result from the top.

Or, if you like Cortana, just say “Hey Cortana. Launch power options.”

Either way, you’ll get to the Power Options section of Control Panel. From the left column select Choose what the power buttons do.

Next, if options are grayed out, select Change settings that are currently unavailable.

Scroll down and check the Hibernate box, and after that make sure to save your settings.

Now when you open the Start menu and select the Power button, the Hibernate option will be available.

It’s also worth noting that the old school method of using the keyboard shortcut Alt+F4 still works, too. And following the steps above adds the Hibernate mode option there as well.

If you’re still running Windows 7, you can read how to enable Hibernate mode in this article.

If you’re not sure which mode to select on your Windows computer, read our article: Understanding your PC: Sleep vs Hibernate.

Thanks. You are helping new Windows 10 users and Microsoft.

I do not know why Microsoft does not provide this type of information about their settings.

I thought I had lost the hibernate option (which I use a lot). This was super helpful.

Yes! Could not agree more with Chris. Use it all the time. Thanks Brian.

I followed instructions to opt for hibernate and the the option “hibernate” was there, BUT, although it seemed to be working, I got up Saturday night to find my laptop had woken up to where I had left off before choosing to hibernate. The next night I again opted to hibernate and laptop shut down (in hibernate mode) only to find that my wife had got up during the early hours of Monday morning to find that the laptop was on and displaying the sign on screen. This has never happened before in the six years of Windows 7, so I assume its a Windows 10 problem.

Thanks a lot for the information.

The option to select hibernate is greyed out on my machine.

Thanks for helping me hibernate again.

It’s all greyed out cant change it…I give up…MS won again! Linux here I come!!

Goat ‘Change Settings that are not currently available’ on the same System Settings menu. It is a trick by MS to allow stats to show greater average startup time for users. Like Volkswagen tricking us about their emissions.

Thanks a lot! I was struggling with trying to enable hibernation. Even the Microsoft website did not help much.

Thanks a lot ….. it is really helpful

yo, deff helpful, much appreciated for the info.

Many thanks…
It is simple but it great and helpful for me

very helpful i must say i almost downgraded to windows 7 cos without the hibernate function i cant make use of my system maximaly

I set every choice to Hibernate and it still doesn’t Hibernate.

Awesome Bro thanks, great tips and help.

thanks, that was really helpful

Hey guys, I followed your instruction some weeks ago and it worked perfectly. But today I noticed, this option is gone – and also the option, the Hibernate box, is not there anymore. I suspect a lately update of win 10, has anyone made a similar experience?

I also don’t have the option to add back “hibernate”. Sucks.

ok, I’ve found a solution. start cmd as admin and insert this command: powercfg.exe /hibernate on
confirm with enter
worked for me

Hi, I tried it as you recommended but it didn’t work for my PC , Error message
‘Unable to perform operation. An unexpected error (0x65b) has occurred: Function failed during execution.’

I had that happen. You need to be sure to start cmd as admin.

Worked for me, thanks a bunch!

BRAVO GREAT JOB AND STEP BY STEP GUIDE GOOD WORK LADS

Thank you 🙂 I have been pondering on the solution activate hibernate for sometimes. You blog was really helpful.

Thanks 2-3 hours of tinkering around!! & your is the only real help out there for hibernate!!

the key is the shutdown options…ie showing hibernate option….mind boggling the MS scriptwriters decided to make hibernate a commonly used function so hard to turn on & off…

After almost a month with my new windows 10 that I uploaded from my previous windows 7, I finally have figured out the solution to adding Hibernate to my Power Options section of my start page. now I have Sleep, Hibernate, Restart, and, Power Down, as I have long desired to have. I googled (actually, I used Firefox), to search for a method to add Hibernate to my power options screen on my laptop, and within literally, 10 to 15 seconds, and, only 3, or, 4, steps (very simple and, easy to follow steps), I am now a happy camper again, with Hibernate as one of my power options, in my new Windows 10 edition that I uploaded to my laptop, around the end of August, 2016, prior to the cancellation date. Thank you Brian, for your article in which you suggested how to accomplish this very easy to “fix,” for my laptop. Warm regards, and, thanks again, for your assistance…..Pablo…..

Thanks a lot! twas really helpful..you deserve the cred!!

This option did not work for me in the latest build 10041. Instead do Windows key and x, then hit command prompt (admin) and paste

What Windows ought to do is to provide this by default, and also enable a hot key to be made (like Windows key, Alt and X) for Sleep). More options, not less.

And change Windows key and e back to File Explorer by default, not Quick Access. To fix that go to Control Panel>File Explorer Options>set Open File Explorer to This PC>OK.

Try going to ncpa.cpl (paste in Run command: Windows key and r), then right click on the Ethernet icon and choose Properties, then hit Configure, and then Power management, and deselect Allow this device to wake omputer. Also under Advanced, you may want to disable anything that says Wake.

If that does not do it, work on allowing USB ports to be turned off.

When I power up my Dell Notebook currently running Build 10049 it goes through what appears to be the normal boot process. As soon as it gets to the point where you would expect to see the Desktop, the screen goes black like it is shut off or hibernating. When I finally get it to reboot, I see an error message telling me the computer is unable to Power Down, The only way I can do anything is to boot to Safe Mode with networking.

In this mode I am able to access the Internet but am UNABLE to access Power Options.
