Have you ever noticed the elimination of “Hibernate” option in your computer power menu? When I newly bought my laptop, I noticed that hibernate option was not included in the power menu which means I can only make use of the remaining options like Shutdown, Switch user, Sleep, Sign out and Restart. (The question that is still not cleared to me still remain “why did Microsoft remove this option?) This made me feel discouraged of using window8 because I discovered the option is in window7, to this extent, I almost replace my window8 with window 7 until I discovered the solution to this bug. Therefore if you’re window 8 and 8.1 user I greet you congratulation… because you can now successfully add “Hibernate” to your power menu.


 

                                        

Why hibernate?
Hibernation is kind of a mix between a traditional shut down and sleep mode primarily designed for laptops. When you tell your PC to hibernate, it saves the current state of your PC (that is, opened programs and documents) to your hard disk and then turns off your PC. Then when it’s time to start it up again all your previous work is ready and waiting for you.


Unlike sleep mode, it doesn’t use any power, but it does take longer to start up again.
Kindly follow the below procedures to restore your hibernate option

1. The first thing you need to do is to access your system’s power settings, I believe there are several ways of doing this but I will use my preferred method:

Press Win-W (that's the Windows key and the letter w) to bring up the Settings Search menu, then type power.

2. Click Change what the power buttons do.

3. Click Change settings that are currently unavailable.

4. Scroll down to the bottom of that window to find the "Shutdown settings" section.

5. Click the box next to Hibernate to enable the option.
6. Click Save changes.

You’re done!


Now, when you go to power down your system, you'll see the Hibernate option in your list of choices. Also, in that same System Settings window (step 4), you can choose Hibernate for any of the "Power and sleep buttons and lid settings" options.


In other words, if you want your system to hibernate when you press the power button or close the lid, this is where you can configure that setting.
