I think its called standby, but I may be all wet. Start, turn off, standby.

Did you by chance delete the hibernation files using Windows' Disk Cleaner?
Who said I couldn't have everything?

I am not sure, but there still is a hibernation tab in the power options in control panel.
So basically, standby is same thing as hibernation?

Almost, Standby will not save your stuff into the memory while hibernation will.. Standby is sort of a short term thing while hibernation is a long term.

1. Hibernation is not same as standby. In Hibernation, Windows copies all data in your RAM to a file and shuts down PC. Later when you wake up from hibenation, Windows copies all data back to RAM. In standby mode, computer is not fully turned off only some parts to save power.

2. How to enable Hibernation?
Open Start Menu > Control Panel > Power Options. Select the Hibernate tab. Check Enable hibernation and click OK. Now you can see hibernation option in shut down menu.

3. How to bring up hibernate menu
If you have enabled Welcome screen then you would not see a drop down list but big icons when you click on Start Menu > Turn off.You have to press Shift key for it to show up as shown in this picture :

4. How to disable Welcome screen and make drop-down list shown when you select Start Menu > Turn off
Open Start Menu > Control Panel > User Accounts. Click on Change the way users log on or off. Un-check the box labeled Use the Welcome screen. Click Apply Options to save changes.

Standby mode in XP can turn off your power to all the unneeded parts of computer and only gives power to RAM. The hard disk, monitor etc all get turned off. I think that is what you are looking for.

Hi, also some other tips on hibernation, the free space on c: must be the same as the ram installed or greater. The bios must also be ACPI compliant (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface)
