Is there any way of setting my HP Pavilion desktop to hibernate under W7?

I have tried all variations of settings in the Power Options control panel list without success, and Hibernate doesn't appear in the Start > Shutdown > options menus like it used to.

I would like to set the machine to hibernate after 30 mins of inactivity.

I have a utility enabling XP hibernation when the computer has over 2Gb RAM but that doesn't run under seven.

TIA

Didn't work. I used the "manual" method and - no hibernation.

I note that at the bottom in the list of operating systems it doesn't mention Seven Home Premium, which is what I am running.
