frriction Posted September 1, 2012 Report Share Posted September 1, 2012 Step 1: Bring up the power options in Control panel by searching Windows 8 for “Power Options” and selecting it under the settings. Alternatively, you can also use the shortcut combination “Windows + I” and then select Control Panel from the list and search for “Power Options”. Step 2: In the Power Options window, click on the link which says “Choose what the power buttons do” and then click on the link which says “Change settings that are currently unavailable”.

Once you have made that change you will start seeing the Hibernate option when you try to shutdown, restart or sleep Windows 8. That’s it, you can now put your Windows 8 PC into Hibernate mode instead of shutting it down. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
