I have little time, so forgive me if I miss an important detail:

I love the idea of hibernating a computer as opposed to shuting it down during the day. The only problem is, I can't seem to manually put it in Hibernation.
When I go to Start, I only have the options Log Off & Turn off Computer not Log Off & Shut Down.
When I click on Turn off Computer, I only get 3 options: Stand By (Not Hibernate), Shut Down, & Restart; however, on my dad's Win XP Pro, he has Log Off & Shut Down. When I click on his Shut Down option, I can a different window asking me what I want to do with the options being Shutdown, Hibernate, Restart, etc.
Hibernation is enabled and I know it works because I set my computer to auto-hibernate after 30 minutes of inactivity and it does. In addition, if I open Task Manager and select Shut Down, I have the options: Turn Off, Hibernate, Restart, Stand By, Log Off, etc.
Is there a way I can change the Turn Off Computer, so that it gives me the option to Hibernate?

After clicking on the "turn off computer" button, depress the "shift key" and you will see the "standby" button change to "hibernate". While holding the "shift key" click on "hibernate"

You are welcome. Hope you and your family are prepared for the storm. I have two daughters and their families in Boca. Keep an eye on it, never know what can happen strengthwise once it hits the Strait.
