    Floob... Here's quick way of seeing if hibernation really is on or off. In the first screenshot, go to your Folder options and temporarily unhide the protected system files (uncheck the box). Say it's ok and Apply. Second screenshot, open your "C" drive. if you DO NOT see the file Hiberfil.sys, hibernation is off. And so is Fast Startup because Fast Startup must use Hibernation.

    Remember to go back and hide the Protected System Files in screenshot #1.

    @alphanumeric

    Based on this, looks like it wont enable hibernation mode for me anyway.

    Code:
    C:\Users>powercfg -h on
    Unable to perform operation.  An unexpected error (0x65b) has occurred:  Function failed during execution.

    @DeaconFrost
    Ok, sounds like I dont want to enable hibermation/Fast Statup, I'm happy with that.
    Just seems odd that I cant if I wanted to. I thought most modern motherboards/drivers would support it.
    Unless I have an odd BIOS setting somewhere.


    @f14tomcat
    Looks like its definitely off. Thanks for confirming.

    Did you run that as Admin Command prompt or normal un-elavated? Not using Admin Command prompt can give you
    error (0x65b)

    I just did it as un-elevated and got:

    C:\Users\dhubb>powercfg -h off
    Unable to perform operation. An unexpected error (0x65b) has occurred: Function failed during execution.

    Yeah, run that as an administrator and it should enable.

    That was it! I ran it with elevated permissions. Now this shows. Odd that wasnt a default.

    So all good now. Although I'll go and disable it again

    Thanks for all your help.

    Floob, now you know how to turn it On/Off and find all the options! Great!

    Suggestion.....you have a Samsung EVO 850 I think you said. Hibernation is really not necessary, neither fast startup. Just more wear and tear on an SSD drive for extremely little gain, if any. Your choice, but I don't use it on solid state devices. Plus the Hiberfil.sys eats up 6-7 GB.

    Yep, I agree. Definitely keeping it turned off. Was just a bit surprised it was off by default when I installed Win 10.
    Maybe it was trying to help me!

    Good going, now you know nothing is broken and it would work if you wanted it. Why it was off to begin with, who knows. Ask a few here why, and they'll tell that "stuff happens" when your working with a computer. In a lot of cases I give up on the "why" and just concentrate on the "how" do I fix it.
