Previously we discussed how to shutdown Windows 8. By default the power button in Windows 8 has only three options, Sleep, Shut Down and Restart. Long time Windows users might remember the good old “hibernation” option in previous versions of Windows. Lets see how can we enable the hibernation option in Windows 8 power button.
Press Windows + I to bring the settings options and then click on Control Panel:
In control panel go to Power Options. You can reach it via Hardware and Sound option in control panel:
In Power Options, click on Change what the power buttons do:
In here, click on Change settings that are currently available:
Scroll down to the bottom to see the options in Shutdown settings. Check Hibernation button to include it in power button option. Save changes:
That’s it. No need for a reboot. Next time you click on the power button you will see the hibernation option there. Enjoy
