Is There A Way To Put "hibernate" Directly On My Windows Xp Start Menu?

Postby Lornell » Thu Oct 30, 2014 2:53 am

I already have it in my shutdown menu. If I do Start -> Turn Off Computer, then I see the Hibernate option. But I want it directly on my Start Menu next to Log Off. Are there any advanced options that will allow me to do this?

Right click on your desktop. From the menu that pops up, choose New->Shortcut. It will prompt you to type the target to the short cut. Enter this(quotes not needed):'C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Hibernate'(Note: if you have windows installed somewhere other than c:/windows then replace that portion appropriately) Hit next and name the shortcut watever you want and hit finish. A shortcut shud now have appeared on your desktop. If you double click it, your machine will hibernate. You can now drag this shortcut whereever you want. You can drag it to the tool bar next to the start button, or just drag in onto the start button to add it to the start menu list.

There is a simpler way Go to "control panel"(you can go there by clicking on start --> settings --> control panel)   Open "power options"   In the "advanced" tap you will see the bottom 2 choices:   The first one says "when I press the power button on my computer" and give you choices, you can choose "hibernate" here. After you say OK, every time you press the power button, you computer will go into hibernation.   The second one is for computers which have the "sleep" button in their keyboard, a pretty common button these days. If you have one, choose this one instead of the first one since you don't have to mess with the "power" button.   Remember, when you press and hold the power button for more than a few seconds, it will mean an immediate power shut down.   Hope this helps.
