Enable Hibernate Option In Start Menu & Power Menu

You may have noticed that when you open the Windows 10 Start menu and press the Power button, that there is no hibernate option on your PC or laptop. You will only have the option to sleep, shut down, or restart your Windows 10 computer.

If you right-click on the Windows start menu icon to bring up the Windows Power menu, you will also notice that the hibernate option is missing when you select ‘Shut down or sign out’.

If you wish to hibernate your PC then you can easily make the hidden hibernate feature show up in both menus on your computer.
