    To make hibernation available, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
    2. In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
    3. When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
    4. At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate on, and then press ENTER.
    5. Type exit and then press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window.

    The error message would lead one to believe that hibernation is not supported on your computer. Do you have a hiberfil.sys in the root directory.

    To check if hibernation is supported type the command powercfg -a

    Hibernate must show as an available option.

    Here are some other options for creating the hibernation file:

    :( I tried the options from that link & they didn't work. Is there a site where I can download "hiberfil.sys" from?

    You can't just download it. The file is created at the time you enable hibernate through the following two registry entries:

    Try deleting the registry entries and reboot. Then recreate the entries again and reboot again. The hiberfil.sys has to be 75 percent of the pagefile.

    I know you said you had the hibernate option before, but is it showing in the available sleep states now. I'm thinking you may have a bigger issue here.

    You have posted in the wrong section. There is a section for Windows 8 problems. Just noticed that you decided to fill in your specs.

    Edit: These skin packs use a modified version of Windows explorer and as such may not be reliable. There's no telling what programming errors have been introduced as a result of the changes. Only genuine Microsoft developed components should be a part of the operating system. You are only asking for trouble by installing this kind of software. In fact, this could be categorized as malware. You could try uninstalling the software and hope that no other damage has been done to your operating system.

    I uninstalled it & the Hibernation is still not showing. The branding files are not "Windows 7 Home Premium" . How do I restore the branding files to "Windows 7 Home Premium"?

    Your best course of action at this point (hibernate is still not showing) is to restore your system back before you installed the skin pack.

    Failing that, the next best thing would be to do a repair install: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html.

    Thirdly, at least a SFC /scannow would be in order to restore any system files that may have been damaged.

    We know that the hibernation function has been damaged. It is yet to be determined if there is any other damage.

    Do you have an option in the bios setup for hibernation? The skin pack may have made bios changes during its setup.

    I'll check the Bios setup & I'll come back to you.

    I was not aware of this, but Microsoft is obviously having a problem with performance on computers that have more than 4 GB of ram and support for hibernation. Have you ever had more than 4GB of ram on your computer cause I see in your specs that you currently have 3 GB. As to not overlook the obvious, with 3 GB of ram you would need at least 3.5 GB of free space if not more to house the hiberfil.sys.

    Hibernation requires sufficient disk space to contain the contents of the computer's memory. Performance is poor on a computer that has more than 4 GB of memory and that has support for hibernation. Therefore, Microsoft has disabled support for hibernation on such computers.

    The article refers to Vista but it may be reasonable to believe that the problem occurs in a Win 7 system.
