Hibernate mode is the power saving mode originally designed for notebooks. Standby mode saves data to the system memory, consuming a small amount of power, while Standby mode consumes zero power and saves data to the hard disk as a hidden file hiberfil.sys. When you turn on your computer, it will pick up where you left off. This guide will show you how to enable or disable Hibernate mode in Windows 10.

How to activate hibernation mode in Windows 10
You can activate or deactivate Hibernate mode in two ways:
Using the command prompt
The easiest way to turn hibernation on or off is to use the command prompt. You will have to run it as administrator: right click on the "Start" button and select the appropriate option. To turn hibernation off, at the command prompt, type powercfg h off and press Enter. This will disable this mode, remove hiberfil.sys from the hard drive, and disable the Windows 10 Quick Start option (which also uses this technology and does not work without Hibernate).
To activate hibernation mode, type "powercfg -h" in the command prompt in the same way.
Using the Registry Editor
Another way to turn off hibernation – If you are using the Registry Editor to run, you can press Win + R on your keyboard and type "regedit, then press Enter.
In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE System CurrentControlSet Control Power locate the DWORD value named HibernateEnabled, double-click it and set it to 1 if hibernation is deactivated and 0 – to deactivate it.
