Why do I not see the hibernate button in Windows 7?

Foad Adnani September 2, 2012

My Windows 7 doesn’t have the hibernate button.

I just can do hibernate auto with power option in control panel after PC goes to sleep.

If I completely turn off my PC in turning on, I can not go back to normal, so I have to select normal view and that messes everything up that I have done in hibernate mode.

How can I fix the problem?

    Start Orb>Shutdown (Next to it click the arrow)>Hibernate

    you have probably turned off hibernate in your power profile. turn it on..

    Control Panel -> Power Opt -> change plan settings -> change advanced power settings -> sleep -> allow hybrid sleep -> ok :)

    Have fun! I hope this is the matter you are facing!

    I didn't got it to much, but anyway, try to update your Graphic Card! (Sometimes is related. But as it seems, the sleep option is active..)
    Also, hibernating needs more than 1GB of disk free space!

    Have you checked to see if its your video card?
    Notes The sleep or hibernate options may not be available for one or more of the following reasons:

    Your video card may not support the sleep function. In this case, update the driver for your video card, or check the video card information and supported drivers that was included with your computer. For more information, see Update drivers: recommended links.
    Some settings are managed by the system administrator. For more information, see Why won't Windows allow me to change a system setting?
    Sleep and other power saving states may be turned off in the BIOS of your computer. To turn on the sleep function, restart your computer, and then enter the BIOS setup. When your computer starts, instructions typically appear on the screen to indicate the key or keyboard shortcut that you must press to enter the BIOS setup process. Because not all computer manufacturers use the same BIOS, different keys may be assigned for this purpose.
    If the hibernate option is missing, you may have the hybrid sleep option turned on.

    GO Enable Hibernate after you log back in...I think that should do it. Also mayby stop using it in Hibernate if your having issues.

        you need to go to power settings in the control panel. You will find hibernate enabled at the expense of more memory usage. If your PC do not recover everything the way it was, either your memory is low or you have some problem with your windows or maybe at times with HDD. For now, just try to find the hibernate option and enable it.

    firstly, i'm not clear on ur question, but i'll still try to help.
    Use the link below to turn-off & then turn-on Hibernation.

    By default hibernation is disabled. So once u enable it u can now use hibernation.

    If u have already done above or have hibernation configured, do check the power settings and set it accordingly as shown in the below for Section-"Where is Hibernate?"

    Let know if it worked.

        It's difficult for me to understand what you are saying but it appears that you are hibernating a machine then doing a total power-off. When you turn it back on, the machine is not booting to a hibernating state. This is the intended behavior and cannot be changed. When a machine is hibernating, any action with the exception of a complete power-off will return the machine to the running state. This includes a power on after going to the power-off state.
