    My computer is no longer capable of hybernating

    I can no longer find the option for enabling hybernation. Not in the control
    panel, not in the power settings... NO WHERE... the only options are
    sleeping, restarting or shutting down. If I put my laptop to sleep, the
    baterry is consummed fast and I hate shutting it down because it takes for
    ever when it starts. How can I fix this?

    Type 'cmd' in the Start Menu search box, and then press CTRL + SHIFT +
    ENTER, to open it in elevated Administrator mode.

    Then type this into the box and press enter:

    powercfg /hibernate on

    ss.

    The hybrid sleep feature and the hibernation feature in Windows Vista may
    become unavailable after you use the Disk Cleanup Tool :
