Laptop Hibernation on vista


I got a problem with my laptop. Formerly I am use to hibernating it but since a friend took it away, on his returning it, the hibernation feature is no more included in its power management option, Please who knows why it is so and how I can get it back

If you have Hybrid Sleep turned on the hybernate function is turned off!

To turn hybrid sleep on or off:


1. Open Power Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Power Options.

2. On the Select a power plan page, click Change plan settings under the selected plan.

3. On the Change settings for the plan page, click Change advanced power settings.

4. On the Advanced settings tab, expand Sleep, expand Allow hybrid sleep, and then do one of the following:

• If you are using a mobile PC, click On battery or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click On.

• If you are using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click On.


5. Click OK, and then click Save changes.

Is this specific to a certain version of Vista?

There is no System and Maintenance in mine? The power options is directly in the control panel.

The information came from a FAQ from microsoft tech support and it didn't reference any specific version! But i did find a note that some computers don't support it!

Oh yeah. I have control panel display as a list from the start menu so I see everything in the control panel.
If you Just open control panel in Windows default view it hides crontorl panel files and display a catagory list, one of which is System and Maintenance.
