Windows 7 - how to turn off hibernation and save hdd space

Postby Sethioz » Sat Apr 23, 2011 3:51 pm

1. run cmd (if you do not know how, read Command Prompt article)
- also in gay 7 it has to be ran as administrator, so its gay

2. type the following command (and press enter ofc)
Code: Select all
powercfg.exe /hibernate off


you are done, it also should delete hidden and protected file called hiberfil.sys located on your system drive.
if not, you can safely delete it later. the size of the file is the size of the ram you was using before last hibernation. just waste of space if you ask me, mine was 2.4gb ..ugh
