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?
