Not all systems support hibernate. Are these systems that were user assembled, or prebuilt (i.e. Dell, HP, etc)?

To enable hibernation, if supported:

1. Go to the Start Menu, then Control Panel

2. Click "Switch To Classic View" on left

3. Double-click "Power Options"

4. Click the "Hibernation" tab on top

5. Check "Enable Hibernation"

6. Then click "OK" and you're done! <_<

Hibernate can be difficult to implement, unless fully supported by your computers motherboard and BIOS. Unless your system is a recent build it likely won't support it.

Are your standby problems on a Windows 98 computer? It's important to have ACPI enabled in BIOS before installing Windows. If not, see this article for changing your registry setting, click here.
