Hibernation mode is included in the current version of Windows 11. When compared to the hibernate mode seen on Android smartphones, this is a very different option. Windows 11’s hibernation feature allows users to turn off their computers while preserving their work. Users can pick up where they left off at any moment. In Windows 11, users must explicitly enable Hibernation mode. We’ll discuss how to enable or disable hibernate mode in Windows 11 in this post.
If we shut down the system without saving the work, we will have to start over when we turn it back on. When you choose Hibernation mode, however, Windows allows you to shut down your computer while preserving your work, allowing you to resume where you left off the next time you swiftly turn it on. For certain types of users, this is a really valuable function. Hibernate mode is more advanced than Sleep mode. In Hibernation mode, the system saves all documents and applications to storage rather than RAM, using less power than in Sleep mode but requiring GBs of storage depending on the situation.
It is worth mentioning that we don’t have the Hibernation option available directly on the quick menu and the power button on Windows 11. We have to manually find out the option and turn it on as no direct options were given.
Here’s how you can enable Hibernate mode in Windows 11
Step-1: Type “Control Panel” in the search box and open it.
Step 2: After opening the control panel, click on the System and Security option.
Step-3: Now find the Power options menu and click on Change what the power buttons do.
Step-4: After clicking on it, search for Change settings that are currently available and tap on it.
Step-5: After clicking on it, head over to the Shutdown settings, turn on the third option (i.e., Hibernate, shown in the power menu), and click on the save changes buttons. You can now close the Control panel.
You will now get the Hibernate option available in the power menu and the quick access menu available after right-clicking on the start menu. Also, if you want to disable the Hibernation mode, follow the same steps and uncheck the Hibernation option in Step 5! You are all good to go now.
