    How to Enable or Disable Hibernation using PowerCFG command line in Windows 10

  2. Windows 10 gets stuck booting with some laptop configurations if hibernation is enabled. Please make it easy to disable hibernation

    Open Administrator Command Prompt:

    • powercfg /H OFF <-- this will eliminate all hibernation types
    • powercfg /H REDUCED <-- this allows for a smaller hiberfil.sys, which only allows for Fast Startup.
    • powercfg /H /? <-- explains options
    powercfg /h /?

    POWERCFG /HIBERNATE <ON|OFF>
    POWERCFG /HIBERNATE /SIZE <PERCENT_SIZE>
    POWERCFG /HIBERNATE /TYPE <REDUCED|FULL>
    Alias:

    POWERCFG /H
    Description:

    Enables/disables the hibernate feature or sets the hiberfile size.
    Parameter List:

    <ON|OFF> Enables/disables the hibernate feature.
    /SIZE <PERCENT_SIZE> Specifies the desired hiberfile size as a percentage

    of the total memory size. The default size cannot be

    smaller than 40. This parameter will also cause

    hibernate to be enabled.
    /TYPE <REDUCED|FULL> Specifies the desired hiberfile type. A reduced

    hiberfile only supports hiberboot.
    Examples:

    POWERCFG /HIBERNATE OFF
    POWERCFG /HIBERNATE /SIZE 100
    POWERCFG /HIBERNATE /TYPE REDUCED

    Also, in Settings - Power & sleep - Additional power settings you can
    Choose what the power button does
    .

    There you can uncheck Turn on fast startup. That might eliminate this issue without disabling hibernation, if full hibernation actually still works well for you. You may just have one hardware component that is not resuming from sleep state
    properly, but that can be hard to track down.

  3. Sleep and hibernate command line

    There are two terms which are close but different, at least I look at them differently

    There is the BIOS fast, quick, speedy boot and as far as I know the only way to change that setting is to enter BIOS and make the change.

    There is Windows Fast Start Up and that is something you can change in Windows. If you disable hibernation using the
    powercfg -h off
    command it, by default, disables Windows Fast Start Up. If you issue command powercfg -h on to re-enable it will turn hibernation back on and assuming you have not changed Fast Startup it will re-enable. If that is how you disable Fast Startup, and we are talking about same "Fast" they enabling hibernation will enable it.

    You can can also control Windows Fast Startup manually with this tutorial.

    Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    If you shut Windows Fast Startup off this way you can continue to use hibernation as a power setting.

    I'm unaware of a command line that changes the state of Windows Fast Startup. I'm sure if it was readily known Shawn would have included in tutorial.
