What Is Hibernate In Computers ? How Can I enable Hibernate Feature In My Laptop / Computer

‘Hibernate’ feature in a computer is something like a temporary shut down, however it is different from shut down in the sense, once a computer is resumed to normal state from Hibernate, the same processes that were running before the system was ‘hibernate’d will be resumed.

Internally when a system is put to hibernate, an image of current working state is written on to a file on the hard drive and when the computer resumes from hibernation, it reads the saved state data from the file on the disk and restores the system to the same state. ie.. programs that were opened are resumed and network connections are restarted without losing any kind of data that were previously opened.

Hibernate in comparison to Standby takes a bit longer time, as it needs to write to a special file on the hard drive. Hibernate also takes bit longer to resume, since it must go through essentially normal boot process and read from the file on the hard disk. Hibernate is different from Standby as it is almost like temporary shut down.

To enable Hibernate feature follow the steps:
1) Go to Control Panel.
2) Double click “Power Options”
3) From the Power Options window select ‘Hibernate’ tab.
4) Select ‘Enable hibernation’ and click Apply.

There is also another procedure to enable Hiberate feature on your computer. Steps are
1) Click on Start and then click Run.
2) Type “powercfg.cpl” and hit Enter.
3) Now from “Power Options” window selct ‘Hibernate’ tab.
4) Select ‘Enable hibernation’ and click Apply.
