Components for Building Computers From Scratch/Hibernate
I have Win7 and I know Hibernate is not an option on the Shutdown list.
But I know you can go into Power Options and then Advanced and turn Off Hybride Hibernate.
Then RUN DOS as ADMIN.
powercfg /hibernat on
it should ad it to the start Shutdown list and it does not.
I did this last time so I know it works can you help?
I'm unsure specifically what you're after - namely:
- Windows 7 does not feature "DOS." It does have its own CLI, Command Prompt, which is a separate entity (although has many common commands with the DOS shell, COMMAND.COM). It is not required for the settings you'd like to change here though.
- Windows 7 does support Hibernation, through Hybrid Sleep, which both keeps the working set in memory, as well as in hiberfil.sys to safeguard against power failure. Generally this setting is sufficient for normal usage scenarios, as it balances power savings and responsiveness.
- Setting whether Windows displays "Hibernate," "Sleep," and other options can be edited through Group Policy settings. The Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) will only be available on Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise however. Third-party registry plug-ins with these settings already built do exist, as well as pictorial guides for using LGPE for making changes yourself, see here: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/148605-shut-down-restart-sleep-hibernate-co
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
