Where did Standby & Hibernate gone??

I installed the new/empty disk drive into the laptop after the disk failed. I then installed Windows XP Home Edition; however I used the MS Windows disk I got from Dell when I got our desktop PC a while ago. I could not find the MS Windows disk I got from Dell with the laptop a few years earlier. Then I went to set the Power Options, but there were no Hibernate or Standby options. When setting what the system should do on a critical low battery alarm, the only option in the drop-down list was "Shutdown". (I'm using the "Portable/Laptop" power scheme.) There were no Hibernate or Standby options, as there had been prior to the disk failure. In addition, when I click Start / Turn off Computer, there is a "Turn Off" and a "Restart" option, but the "Stand by" option is greyed out (not available). Please Help me out.

If Hibernation is disabled by default in your computer. Here’s my suggestion, Go into Start > Select Settings > Select Control Panel > and choose Power Options. Move over and click on the Hibernate tab, then check the Enable Hibernation check box to enable it. Or you can manually start hibernation of your PC to enable it. Click Start < choose Turn Off Computer< Usually on the left sidebar the resulting pop-up window is ''Stand-By''. But, if you hold down the Shift key it becomes ''Hibernate''. So holding down the Shift-Key and clicking on the resulting ''Hibernate'' button (the left-most button) will cause your computer to start hibernation mode.

That’s it. I hope it will help your problem.

Hello Dear,

When we install new windows, the "Hibernate" option becomes invisible.

We have to start these options manually.

Just right click on the desktop and choose "properties".

After that, click on the screen saver tab, and then click on the power button.

This button will be in front of Energy Star logo.

When you click on it, a new window will appear.

Choose the hibernate tab and then click on "Enable Hibernation". It will take up more than 500 MB of space. Thanks.
