Vista Hibernate problem fix

I think this is a bug in vista. Sometimes there is no way to hibernate the computer. Hibernate feature is gone. This can happen when you run disk cleanup. You can turn on Hibernate again by running this command in command prompt (Run as administrator).

powercfg /h on

Hibernate should appear in the shut down menu now.

if you don't want it, run:

powercfg /h off

Be sure to run the command Prompt as an administrator (right-click the application) or you will not have permission to change the hibernation configuration. This really helps, thanks.
