Is your computer running on the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system? If it is, then you must have by now noticed that by default the Hibernate option is not available. This means that you will have to enable the option yourself. Hibernation can really come in handy especially when you want to continue with what you were doing at a later time. But if you are running the Windows on a laptop computer and have not changed what happens when the lid of the laptop is closed, then all you will need to do is just close the laptop’s lid. If you are not comfortable with closing your laptop’s lid, then follow the steps below to enable the hibernate option on your Windows 10 Operating System;
Enabling Hibernate Option on Windows 10:
- Click on the Windows icon.
- When the panel come up, locate and click on Settings.
- On the Settings page, click on System (Display, notifications, apps, power).
- Next locate and click on Power and Sleep >>> Additional power settings.
- On the new page that will pop-up, locate and click on Choose what the power buttons do or Choose what closing the lid does.
- Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable so that the shutdown settings options below the page can be clickable.
- Move down the page. Notice that the check-box for Hibernate under Shutdown settings is unchecked. Click inside the check-box to enable it.
- Finally click on Save Changes to apply the change you just made.
With that done, you should have the Hibernate option appearing among the Power options.
