Is this system a laptop? If so, you may have a Function (FN) key combination to enable it... which on my Dell is a F2, which has a blue crescent moon on it. So, it would be the combination of pressing Fn+F2 together.

In addition, you may try to enable it using the command line, by executing the following in a command prompt or on the 'Run' dialog.
"rundll32 powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState"

HIBERNATION


THE OPERATING SYSTEMS WHICH THE MICROSOFT HAVE PRESENTED TO US HAVE MANY ADVANTAGES AND NOW I AM SHARING ONE WITH YOU FRIENDS.
WHEN WE ARE DOING A TASK,IF WE WANT TO GO FOR ANOTHER WORK LEAVING THE COMPUTER ALONE,WE USUALLY SAVE THE WORK AND SHUTDOWN THE SYSTEM AND GO FOR THE NEW WORK.BY A SIMPLE TECHNIQUE THIS CAN BE AVOIDED AND WE CAN REENTER INTO THE WORK WHICH WE WHERE DOING BEFORE SHUTDOWN.THIS FEATURE IS CALLED HIBERNATION.THE STEPS TO DO THIS IS THE FOLLOWING.
1.Click Start
2.Select Settings-Control panel- Power options-Hibernate- Enable hibernation.
3.The system can be left to hibernate by selecting the turnoff option,then point the mouse to the stand by option and by pressing down the shift key,select it,then you can see the option as hibernate and select it.Then you can see instead of shutting down windows,it gives the message as hibernating.Then it is ready,then you can return to the work by again pressing the main power switch of the CPU.Try it and look how amazing it is.
WARNING:First go for a trial with open windows(2 or 3......) and then try in actual practice.Does not cause any failure to the system 100% safe operation.Thank you

Win xp home hibernate no longer works


Right click on an empty area of your Desktop. Select Properties. Select the Screen Saver tab. Click the Power button. Click the Hibernate tab. Select the Hibernate check box.

If you can't check the hibernate option it is because you don't have enough disk space. Delete old pictures and videos that you have already backed up to make some space.
