Enable Hibernation on your computer

Hibernation is the state when your computer goes off without you losing any data, but saving energy. All data on the RAM is stored on the hard disk (or other media), only to be accessed and restored when the computer boots up the next time. Some computers do not have the option to hibernate. This is a simple way to get that option.

If you would prefer to stand by
(put the computer in a sleep mode for you to wake it up by moving the mouse or pressing a key on the keyboard), read my other post.

This is the code to hibernate your computer

rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState

This code puts the computer on hibernation. You can create a batch file with this command or a shortcut with this command. You can decide to type it each time in the command prompt or in the run dialog.
