How to hibernate you Windows XP machine



July 15th, 2005

You've enabled the hibernate option under the Hibernate tab in Power Options in Control Panel but you still can't find how to hibernate?

If, when you try to hibernate your system you are only faced with the option to Stand by, Turn Off and Restart in the Turn Off Your Computer dialog box then you will need to press and hold down the SHIFT key to change the Stand By button to Hibernate.

This is normal behavior for a system with XP SP2 but a hotfix is available for this issue from Microsoft.
