Clean up your hard disk..you are low on space

Hibernation only works if your hard drive has enough space to equal to the amount of physical RAM on your machine. Hibernation works by taking what is in RAM and copying it to the hard disk, thus preserving the current state of the machine without losing anything. If your HD is low on space, hibernation won't work, which is why the option is grayed out.

The option for hibernate mode is not grayed out, it doesn't exist anymore.

Have you tried disabling Terminal Services? We had the same problem and disabling that service fixed it.

Hibernate option disappears again

by rm666 In reply to Terminal Services

Oops - problem re-appeared (ie. hibernate disappeared again). Turns out Microsoft have a hotfix - for a discussion see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909095
(the hotfix has a somewhat unhelpful title but refers to this very problem for people with 2Gb of memory)
