My computer won't hibernate!!
« on: 26/11/2008 02:26:43 »
Ever since I've had my computer (Windows vista by the way) I've been able to hibernate it. But a few days ago, this thing came up telling me that my C Disk was too full and the computer was going to get rid of some useless data/information. So I ignorantly clicked agreed oblivious to the trouble it was going to cause. So now, I can't hibernate my computer!! >:( >:( Its like the button was never there at all, its crazy [:0] I can't believe it. Does anyone have any idea what happened and/or how can I get it back.

The hibernate button can disappear after a disk cleanup. After you delete the hibernate file. Anyway there is a quick way to get back the hibernate button. Click on your Vista start menu and right click on the command prompt. Make sure you choose to run as administrator.

Then Key the following command:

 powercfg /hibernate on

Whambam alacazam check your shutdown options you should see the hibernate option appear again.

Hope this tip helps

Defragment your Cdrive to "move" around the files or buy more drive for that drive.

Have you tried putting it in a straw lined box and then put it up in the attic. It works for my tortoise.
