Enable / Disable Hibernate on Windows 7


I’m using windows 7 enterprise. Hibernate use hiberfil.sys file to store memory (RAM). So the size of the hiberfil.sys file is the same with the size of the memory (RAM). If you don’t use this hibernate feature, it’s recommended to disable this feature because you can save disk spaces.

To enable hibernate:

  1. open cmd as administrator (right click on cmd icon and select run as administrator).
  2. enter command: powercfg -h on and press Enter.

To disable hibernate:

  1. open cmd as administrator (right click on cmd icon and select run as administrator).
  2. enter command: powercfg -h off and press Enter.
