Oop! actually Darrel it is, Its just hard to find and buried. Its under
power options > Edit plan settings > Choose your power Profile. There are 2
drop down box's "turn off monitor" and "Put the Computer to Sleep" . Below
them is a hyperlink, "Change advanced power settings" click on that, a
window will open. scroll down to "sleep" expand the "Sleep" branch and you
will have 3 options
and "Hybernate after"
Set Hybernate after to 0 for never and the hyberfile.sys can be deleted.
Now going back to the "Put the Computer to Sleep" option, if this is set to
NEVER You can still set The "Hybernate After" to any value of minutes for
hybernate without sleep or vice versa through the Advanced settings Dialog
for your chosen power profile.
Hope that helps clear things up as microsoft has combined the Sleep and
Hybernate into a single function, but you can still set them seperatley if
Now that's intersting and usefull! Thanks for posting that. I'd been looking
for that exact feature for about 1/2 hour then decided to read my eMail and
some of the newsgroup. And there it was! Thanks!!!
