To turn on the hibernate option, make sure you are logged on as administrator.
  • Right click in an empty space on your desktop and select properties.
  • Click the Screen Saver tab.
  • Click the Power button (in the right part, above the Cancel button).
  • Click the Hibernate tab and check Enable hibernation.
  • Click Apply and then OK, the power option window will close.
  • Click OK, the display options window will close.
Now you should be able to use hibernation.

I have tried that but i am not seeing the option to Enable hibernation.I'm seeing Power Schemes, Advance And UPS as my option and under those I'm not seeing anything on Hibernation.Also another thing is i can't access the Favorites menu on my IE explorer.

Not all systems support the hibernate option.
To find out why on your system you cannot enable it, please do the following.
  • Click Start > Run
  • In the box that pops up, please copy this text powercfg /hibernate on (note the space between the g and the /)
  • Since you dont have the hibernate tab, most likely you will get an error message that tells you hibernate cannot be enabled, and, more important, why. Please post the content of the error message in your next post (if you got one).

For the internet explorer problem, please tell me what version you have tried to enable the favourites menu using View > Toolbars > Favourites. Don't you see the favourites toolbar, or simply does the favourites menu not exist?

Ok when i run the command powercfg /hibernate on i didn't get an error message what happen was when i ran the cmd a black window showed up d cut off the window looked like the command prompt.

For the IE explorer the favourites is not on the toolbar menu but it's on the menu itself and when i click on it t just turns grey and nothing happens

Please read this article on hibernation. Note the circumstances that prevent XP from using hibernate.

What version of IE are you using? Do you have another browser installed (like firefox)?

With regards to the hibernation, if your computer does not support hibernation does that mean your computer does not have the sleep mode as well.

I am using IE 7 and yes i also have firefox

Fast reply before I leave:
Try to update to IE8, see if that changes something.
If its the same in IE8, try importing your favourites from firefox.

Try uninstalling IE7 using add/remove programs and then install IE8, see if that works.

becasue standby and hibernate is a mother bored thing not a software thing

there uesd to be a file for win 98 and win me that would tell why you hibernate is gone but i cant remeber the name of it

Generally, if the hibernate option is not there, it is not supported by your system, for diverse reasons. It is possible to be disabled in BIOS, you can check the BIOS settings to see if there is anything related to hibernation there.
