You're done!

Your hibernation is now activated. You can now press the "ADVANCED" tab and select "hibernate" as one of the options you'd like your computer to do when you either "close the lid" "press the sleep button" etc.

To find the sleep button please see my hub here: Click here to find your computer's sleep button


NOTE: HIBERNATION IS A LOWER POWER MODE, WHEREIN YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN WILL RE-APPEAR WHEN YOU POWER UP. HOWEVER, UNSAVED DOCUMENTS MAY BE LOST IF YOUR BATTERY RUNS OUT OF POWER TOTALLY. YOUR SCREEN WILL APPEAR DARK IN HIBERNATION AND THE COMPUTER APPEARS TO SHUT DOWN.
