In Windows 10, it is possible to add the Hibernate option to the power button menu inside the Start menu. Using that command, you can easily use hibernation instead of the shutdown command and your PC will still be powered off. The hibernation mode in Windows is very useful and time-saving as you don't have to close your open documents and apps before powering off the system. You can resume your work the next time exactly where you stopped. Here is how to add the Hibernate command to Start Menu in Windows 10.
If your Start menu in Windows 10 does not contain the Hibernate option, you need to do the following:
- Open Control Panel.
- Go to the following item:
Hardware and Sound\Power Options
- On the left, click "Choose what the power buttons do":
- Click the Change Settings that are currently unavailable link. The Shutdown options will become editable. Check the option there called Hibernate (Show in Power menu).
You are done.
To hide the Hibernate option from the Shutdown menu of the Start Menu on Windows 10, just untick that checkbox.
