How to Disable or Enable Hibernate in Windows (via WindowsKernel.com)

Hibernate is when Windows 10 saves an image of the Windows kernel and drivers into memory (C:hiberfil.sys) when your computer sleeps and then loads that hiberfile to resume rather than restart your computer. In this tutorial, we show you how to enable or disable hibernate.

1: Enable or Disable Hibernate With PowerShell

Open PowerShell as admin.

Disable Hibernate – powercfg -h off

Enable Hibernate – powercfg -h on

Note – Once you disable hibernate, the hiberfil.sys will automatically be deleted, freeing up drive space.

Open your advanced power options and verify Critical battery action and Low battery action is not set to Hibernate.

2: Enable or Disable Hibernate in Settings

Go to Advanced Power Options and expand Sleep > Hibernate after.

Disable Hibernate – Settings (Minutes) Never

Enable Hibernate – Settings (Minutes) set time to hibernate

Enable or Disable Hibernate in the Registry

Download the registry files from MajorGeeks.

Double-click on Disable Hibernate.reg to disable or Enable Hibernate.reg to enable. Click twice when prompted.

When you enable Hibernate, you’ll need to go to the Advanced Power settings and chose the Hibernate time, as explained in Step 2 above.
