Hi:

 

Newbie from MN here~!!

 

A question:  I have just finished reinstalling my second DELL replacement computer and this one (an upgrade) does not have the 'hibernate' function on it~!

 

DELL T3600, W7, 16gb, 2T hds

 

I've been Googling my fingers off and nothing has worked.

 

Would soooo appreciate any help you could give~!

 

Be gentle~!!  ;+}

 

Thanx much~!

First of all, welcome to BC !

 

Unless Google misleads me, this computer is a desktop. If Control Panel / Power Options doesn't mention a hibernate option, it hasn't got one.

 

If it is of any help, there is a concensus on BC that 'Hibernation' is for laptops where battery life or endurance is a consideration, but can cause problems on desktops when coming out of hibernation. My own desktop is merely set to turn off the monitor after 20 minutes, otherwise everything else stays active from the time it is switched to the time I turn it off.

Hi Chris:

 

You are correct.  This is a DELL Desktop - T3600.

I did check the Power Options -- no hibernate~!

Because I have a 'new'  computer~?

Really like the hibernate feature on the old one.

 

Thanx so much for responding~!!
