Ok, so today was at Starbucks, and wanted to move on down the road, so I wanted to hibernate. To no avail, no option to hibernate my laptop in the shutdown area. Just sleep, shutdown, restart.
After 10 minutes of F’n around, I figured it out. Turn off “Allow Hybrid Sleep” in the advanced power settings in the power settings in control panel. Wow – that’s exactly where I would expect to turn it on!
Start->Control Panel. In the search I typed “hib” and an option to “Turn hibernation on or off” under Power Options comes up. Click on that. Then there is a link “Change advanced power settings”, click on that. Dig through the settings until you find the “Allow Hybrid Sleep” under the Sleep option.
Nothing like making an option to actually turn on or off hibernation…man.
