Windows Vista Hibernate Feature

I recently upgraded my OS to Vista (as one can see on one of my previous post). The elegant look-and-feel and better security -or so they claimed- had made me to take this journey (har..har...har...). I know but a bit about the Security issues, but the look-and-feel is one thing for certain. If you talked about ease-of-use, one can say that it's about fifty-fifty, like I found it easy to connect to a network but it's a walk-in-a-maze to find out how to tweak the setting.

I'm mobile and I need my laptop to boot-up and shut-down faster. If I were to follow the normal sequence of powering-up and shutting-down, it'll take forever. So I've found this HIBERNATE feature on XP litterally cut-the-middle-man. It could cut up until half of the time I'd needed on those routines.

But...! This won't happened on my Vista...!!!

Like I said earlier, I really went on a maze with Vista trying to find the setting I need, but came up with nothing but frustration. So I turned to my beloved uncle google and found out that Vista is no longer giving it's users the luxury to enable or disable hibernation via desktop graphical user interface.

So here's how to re-enable it:
  1. Type cmd into your Vista's Start Menu Search Box, and use Ctrl+Shift+Enter or you can also right-click the item in the menu and choose Run as Administrator to open in administrator mode.
  2. Type in the command powercfg -h on in the appearing command prompt window.
  3. You're Done...! Here's the screen shots of before-and-after the process.


And if you ever want to turn it off again, well... I think you can guess what to type in. (^_^)

Note: Here's what Microsoft has to say

Hibernate is a powerful, high performance object/relational persistence and query service. Hibernate lets you develop persistent classes following object-oriented idiom - including association, inheritance, polymorphism, composition, and collections. Hibernate allows you to express queries in its own portable SQL extension (HQL), as well as in native SQL, or with an object-oriented Criteria and Example API.
