How to enable Hibernate mode in Windows 8 PC

Do you know how to enable hibernate mode in windows 8 pc? No, then don't worry today i will tell you how to enable hibernation mode on windows pc. Lets, first of all understand what is hibernate. Hibernation saves electrical power. After hibernating, the hardware is completely powered down (just like for a regular shutdown). Therefore a hibernated machine uses no more electrical power than one which is switched off. Hibernation is a means of avoiding the burden of saving unsaved data before shutting down and restoring all running programs after powering back on.

So lets do it step by step, Hibernating your pc is very helpful when you have some urgent work and simultaneously you don't want to loose your current work, that time this feature comes in picture, just put your pc in hibernating mode, to get your all files and mails as it is, as that was before hibernating.

Just follow These steps to enable Hibernate mode in your Windows 8 PC:
  1. You'll need to access your system's power settings, which you can do any number of ways. My preferred method: press Win-W (that's the Windows key and the letter w) to bring up the Settings Search menu, then type power.
  2. Click Change what the power buttons do.
  3. Click Change settings that are currently unavailable.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of that window to find the "Shutdown settings" section.
  5. Click the box next to Hibernate to enable the option.
  6. Click Save changes.
  7. Now, when you go to power down your system, you'll see the Hibernate option in your list of choices. Also, in that same System Settings window (step 4), you can choose Hibernate for any of the "Power and sleep buttons and lid settings" options.
In other words, if you want your system to hibernate when you press the power button or close the lid, this is where you can configure that setting.
