Window Vista Quick Tip: Enable or Disable Hibernation From Command Line

by Shivaranjan on July 1, 2008

ADVERTISEMENTS

In Windows Vista turning ON and OFF the hibernation involves navigating to Control panel > Power Options > Power Plan, which I believe is little tedious to do. You can enable or disable Hibernate function from the command line which  is much easier and faster. Here is how to do it:

1. Open the command line by going to Start > Run > Type “cmd”

2. Now type the command below mentioned commands to enable or disable the Hibernation function. You would have to run this in administrator mode.

Function Command
Enable Hibernation powercfg /hibernate on
Disable Hibernation powercfg /hibernate off

windows_vista_hibernateon

windows_vista_hibernateoff

3. For quick access you can create a batch file using this command and run it.

Try and let me know if you encounter any problems.
