    I have an old Samsung NB30 netbook.

    It came with windows 7 starter, but I installed windows 8 on it and everything ran fine.

    Now I did the upgrade to windows 10 and everthing worked fine and it was faster than the windows 8, but still sluggish because I didn't do a clean re-installation for a very long time.

    Today I did a system reset (clean installation) and everything works great, so much faster except one thing: hibernation.

    I don't get that option in the 'shut down' menu.

    I did the following

    "powercfg -h on" from the admin command line,
    the hiberfil.sys is now there but I still don't get that option in the 'shut down' menu.
    I don't even get the option in the "change settings that are currently unavailable" in the "advance power options"
    The registry key says it's enabled.

    "powercfg -a" gives me this:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg -a
    The following sleep states are available on this system:
    Standby (S3)
    Fast Startup


    The following sleep states are not available on this system:
    Standby (S1)
    The system firmware does not support this standby state.


    Standby (S2)
    The system firmware does not support this standby state.


    Hibernate
    The hiberfile type does not support hibernation.


    Standby (S0 Low Power Idle)
    The system firmware does not support this standby state.


    Hybrid Sleep
    Hibernation is not available.



    I tried the following:
    turn powercfg /h off and on
    updating drivers
    change CMOS configurations

    The thing is that hibernation worked fine with windows 10 before the reset.

    Please help

    Thanks

    Why didn't you use the Power Option from the Control Panel and create your own Power Plan?

    Just as an example Set the option: "What the Power switch do" to Hibernate! That would work just fine and you just have to press the power button short to get the machine don to hibernate state!

    Try turning off system restore and hibernate, reboot, turn them back on again, reboot. But only as a last resort because you'll lose your restore points.

    Neither do I, but shutdown /h does put my system to hibernation.
    PS: Hibernate is available as a sleep state option in my system.

    Hibernation is broken in Windows 10. At 3AM your pc will turn on automagically. Aliens!
