    If that doesn't work it could be a manually added registry item, finding that could be more difficult.
    @Bree: Would this count as a manually added registry entry?

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power]
    "HibernateEnabled"=dword:00000000

    As explained, there is a registry setting that's restricting this, the trick is finding it. Go into group policy editor and look for any policies relating to power. Any relevant policy has to be set to 'not configured', 'enabled' or 'disabled' both count as 'managed by your administrator'.

    I did rebooted.
    Cannot find it.
    Anyhow my main aim (aside from Hibernation) is fixing the no-sound problem upon restart from GRUB

    I thought that Fast Startup is the culprit but apparently it's not.

    Yes @WOT, but it's not one that counts as 'managed by...'. Those are to be found in some of the many .../Policy/... keys under HKLM or HKCU. The safest way to modify those is the Group Policy editor, which holds templates for the keys used in each policy and can easily be used to undo such changes. Manually editing the registry can have the same effect, but is much more difficult to keep track of.

    If you want to experiment with a safe one, I gave an example in the post I linked to in Post #2 of this thread.

    No need for me to experiment but thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately, I am away from my home and I only have my laptop with me (Home version) so I could not access any group policies to see if that change was reflected in any power-related policies. That is why I asked. Anyway, the OP appears to have found an acceptable solution because he marked this thread as solved.

    @Bree: Thank you again for your response.

    Is not working. It says: "some settings are managed by your system administrator".
    @rypz79, I have found the group policy that recreates your screenshot in post #1. The clue is that your 'Sleep: show in power menu' is greyed out even though you have clicked 'Change settings that are currently unavailable'. It's this:
    Administrative Templates > Windows Components > File Explorer > Show sleep in the power options menu.

    You seem to have this Enabled, set it for Not Configured.
