Question Where did the Hibernate Tab go ??

I have XP Pro set up on a couple different partitions.

On the one partition, the Hibernate Tab does NOT appear under the Power Options.

How do I set up Hibernate mode if the Tab (Option) is not showing ?

That is the problem. The Hibernate Tab is NOT showing up there.

However, it DOES appear in the "other" XP partition on my PC, but NOT on this partition.

I can't fiqure out why it won't show up.....

Ideas ??

according to what i found it has to due with your driver(s). try installing the most up-to-date video drivers for your machine. and make SURE ur logged in as the administrator and not some sort of cloned acct.

That did the trick!!

I reinstalled my Video driver (nVidia GeForce 6200) and the Hibernate Tab reappeared on the Power Options screen!

Thank you very much!!
