  1. hiberfil.sys for sleep mode


    Hello there,


    I just read a post on StackOverflow by 'Corporate Geek' saying that hiberfil.sys is needed for sleep mode as well as hibernate. I'd like a confirmation that this is indeed the case (would greatly appreciate some references to Microsoft sources), since I only use sleep and I'd like to have the 13GB hiberfil.sys gone from my SSD ^_^.



    Thank you very much.

    :)

    Deleting Hiberfil & Pagefile

    Howdy,

    So I have a 60gb SSD with Windows 7 and Office on it (all specs are listed <--- under my username). I have a 12gb pagefile and a 9gb hiberfil, is it possible to delete those or make it so that hiberfil at the very least is no longer created? I just want a little free space on there for future use.

    Thoughts?

    sleep mode

    Hi disgruntledWC,

    There could be other settings on your computer that triggers your computer to go on sleep even though the sleep settings is set to never. To ensure that the sleep and display settings are properly set, I suggest that you look into the Advanced Power Settings.
    Follow these steps:

    • Open Control Panel and click Power Options.
    • On your preferred plan, click Change plan settings.
    • Click advanced power settings.
    • Expand Sleep option, and make sure to set the following:
    Sleep after : Never

    Hibernate after : Never

    5. Click Apply, then OK.

    Please check also the screen saver option.

    • Navigate to Settings > Personalization > Lock screen.
    • Click Screen saver settings.
    • Set your Screen saver to None.
    • Click Apply, then OK.

    Once done, please observe if your computer still goes to sleep mode after a few minutes of inactivity.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Regards.
