In fact, I was unable to remove hiberfil.sys by altering the appropriate Power Options on either Windows Windows or Vista 7 . Type exit, and press Enter to close the Command Prompt window then.

While there are lots of compelling reasons to keep your computer running, there are some scenarios where it’s definitely best to shut it down. Electricity can be expensive and every cent counts sometimes. If you are concerned about energy costs, leaving your computer on all the right time will reflect on the utility bill.
since you have tried a lot of things already, try to delete that file using some other OS . If you are having some issues with windows use Microsoft Fixit then. disable sleep was using this with my Genuine Windows XP operating system. I’m not 100 % sure that Process Monitor caused it, but I don’t want to try it just right now since I don’t have the time to set the computer up again if it fails.
Should I disable hibernate? So, is it safe to delete hiberfil. sys? If you don’t use the Hibernate feature, then it’s perfectly safe to remove, although it’s not quite as straightforward as dragging it to the Recycle bin. Those who do use Hibernate mode will need to leave it in place, as the feature requires the file to store information.

the Command Prompt press and window Enter. Use the charged power Users task menu to open the Elevated Command Prompt..
Why does my laptop hibernate by itself? If you’re using an SSD on anything older than Windows 7, TRIM isn’t supported and you should probably upgrade anyway. In short, most of the downsides to using an SSD aren’t as bad as they used to be and you don’t really need to stress if you never “optimized” your drive. It’s already pretty optimal.
- When your personal computer goes into Hibernate mode, Windows retailers your RAM data in the hard drive.
- When you delete hiberfil.sys from your personal computer, you can completely disable Hibernate and produce this space available.
- This allows it to save the system state without power usage and boot right back up to where you were.
If windows 7 hybernation don’t see anything, run Process Monitor and enable boot logging , then look for "hiber" and see/post what you find. Repeat 5 and 6 until you find the service causing hibernation to be turned back on (don’t forget to do step 4 if it is activated again). If hibernation is deactivated start msconfig still. exe and activate half of the services again. It is suggested then to Look in all the Sleep branch and turn off everything possible, Try to boot in Safe mode so if this doesn’t happen then it is caused by a startup application.
Shut Down Vs. Sleeping Vs. Hibernate
I’ve tried everything I can think off to turn off hibernation. You should have Hibernate option available in the Start Menu now.
Instead of waiting for it to boot you can hop right in and get to work or play. With SSDs, boot times are reduced, but if you have lots of programs set to start with Windows, it can take a minute or two to get started still. On the other hand, while the “sleep” function in Windows works as it should, sometimes your machine will flat out refuse to wake and you will have to restart anyway up. For some people, they have lots of productivity programs running all the right time, so rebooting can be a hassle.

Typepowercfg.exe /hibernate off into the Command Prompt press and window Enter. One way to open an Elevated Command Prompt in Windows 10 is from the Start menu.
