    Sleeping instead of hibernating after Creators Update

    With normal version of Windows 10, when I pressed hibernate my laptop was hibernating properly.

    After installing the Creators Update, I enabled hibernation from command line. But when I press hibernate at start menu, laptop is going into sleep mode. Although there is a hiberfil.sys file at C drive.

    I've also noticed that, at the "Choose what the power buttons do" section of Power Options, hibernate is not listed.

    I've experienced this issue with both Creators Update and Fall Creators Update.

    Hi gezginrocker

    While that options appears gone have you tried tighten up your timeframe to enable hibernation in the advance power option. By this I mean set it really low, so machine goes to sleep and so many minutes later it hibernates.

    You may also want to use the Microsoft Feedback hub. The more people that voice an issue the more likely it is they will listen.

    You need to get away from Hibernate, since at some point you will lose your work if it is not saved. Fast Boot is risky if you want to use it, otherwise use a decent SSD to get fast speeds from a cold boot. Hibernate is good if you are going to use WOL.
