Hibernate problem

By rschreiber9 ·
It seems that ever since I installed XP,SP2 that the Hibernate function selection has disappeared from the Start-Turn Off Computer menu. What can I do to correct this?

Open the Control Panel, choose Power Options -> Hibernation tab.
Make sure Hibernation is still checked. If it is, uncheck it, click OK, then go back into Power Options and the Hibernation tab, re-select the Hibernation option and click OK again.
Then see if it's OK now.

For hibernate to function, ACPI must be enabled. Check System Devices in Device Manager to ensure that ACPI is installed and functional.

Here's a link to more details, if you want to pursue further.

ACPI must be enabled in BIOS settings (usually under Power or Power Management) and functioning when XP is installed. A repair install or full re-installation is required to configure ACPI.

I assume hibernation was previously enabled and functional. Haven't seen SP2 disable ACPI, but suppose anything is possible in Winders.

Got your message. Have you checked BIOS settings to ensure that ACPI is enabled in BIOS?
