Vista 64-bit Ultimate upgrade

Jump to solution

I just recently upgraded my XPS M1530 to Vista 64-bit Ultimate and I no longer can go to hibernate mode I can only "sleep" or "shut down" is there a fix for this?

 

Thanks,

Marcos

If you run the command prompt as administrator, then type "powercfg -h on" it should return Hibernate to your list of choices.

marcoshid,

Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.

Make Sure Power Management Options Are Correct

 

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and click Control Panel.

  2. Double-click Power Options.
    The Power Options Properties window appears.

  3. On the Power Schemes tab, confirm that Always On is not selected.

  4. Verify that the power settings are set to allow the system to suspend.

I tried doing power -h on but nothing changed, the command prompt flased for a bried second

as for changing the power option to net be on always on I could find where to do that once I was already in power options. Do yall have any other way of doing it?

 

Thanks,

Marcos
