    “Hibernate” option in Power Menu is missing in Windows 8 System

    I installed Windows 8 in my System. But,I am unable to find the “Hibernate” option in my System. I do not do any changes. I scanned the System to remove any Virus, if any. Please, help me in solving the problem. Thank you in advance.

    Hi.
    To enable it follow the below steps,
    >go to the “[FONT=Courier New]Power Options[/FONT]” page and click the link “[FONT=Courier New]Choose what the power buttons do[/FONT]” in the left side panel.
    >This will navigate you to the “[FONT=Courier New]System Settings[/FONT]” page of “[FONT=Courier New]Power Options[/FONT]”. At the bottom of the page (under “Shutdown settings” section), you will find that the “Hibernate” option is unchecked and it is disabled for any changes. To activate it for modification, click the “Change settings that are currently unavailable” link present at the top of the page.
    >This will enable you the “Shutdown settings” section. Now check the “Hibernate” settings.
    >Now click on the “Save changes” button to save the modified settings to the system and activate the hibernate option.
    >Now if you go to the Power menu, you will notice the “[FONT=Courier New]Hibernate[/FONT]” option now available there and you will be able to hibernate your system now.

    Thank you.
