Option 1: Disable, enable customize, turn off/on Hibernate or Sleep in Windows 8 via Power Options

First, open Windows Control Panel and then open the "Power Options" button. In the Power Options, click "Change Plan Settings".

Then you can edit the power settings of Windows 8/8.1, such as turning the power saving mode on or off.

Or press the key combination [Win-Logo]+[R], then just type the command

control.exe /name Microsoft.PowerOptions
and press enter to open the Power Options directly.


Offers full performance when you need it and saves power when you don't. This is the best power plan for most people.

Power saver.
Saves power by reducing PC performance and screen brightness. If you're using a laptop, this plan can help you get the most from a single battery charge.

High performance.
Maximizes screen brightness and might increase PC performance. This plan uses a lot more energy, so your laptop battery won't last as long between charges.

Option 2: Disable or enable hibernation via cmd.exe command powercfg

To enable hibernation via powercfg, simply enter the following in Command Prompt:

powercfg -h on
To disable hibernation, simply enter the following:

powercfg -h off
More powercfg commands can be found on the PCHF guide HERE
