Guide On How To Enable Hibernate in Windows 8, 8.1 And Windows 10

A coursemate of mine bought a new Hp 250 which came with a factory OS of Windows 8.1, surprisingly to her, Hibernate isn't included in the power options. So she thought it was a fault from the PC without knowing that default, Windows 8 or 8.1 doesn't have to hibernate, and it needs to be enabled manually. So first things first, I did a fresh install of the Windows 8.1 to remove the bloatware, made a complete installation the drivers so as to improve the performance of the PC, then proceeded to enabling hibernate, but before I go on, let me quickly tell you what Hibernate means.

Hibernation in computing is a command which instructs the computer to suspend its operations and powers down the computer while retaining its state. Upon hibernation, the computer saves the contents of its random access memory (RAM) to a hard disk or other non-volatile storage. Any unsaved data is not lost during the process, and the user can also continue working on the once he/she boots up the computer again.
