How To Enable Hibernate Option In Windows 8

Windows 8 (RP) has no Hibernate option; however, it is still available in Windows 8 in disabled mode. If you need this option, you can easily enable it from the Power Settings options.

To enable Hibernate option in Windows 8, open Control Panel (you can open it from Windows 8 Settings panel, click Win + C) and then click “Power Options”.

On the left pane click “Choose what the power button does” option. Then click “Change settings that are currently unavailable and enable “Hibernate” option.

Click “Save Changes” button to save the settings. That’s it!
