It saves all the programs, applications and files you were working on, so that you do not need to close and open them whenever you move away from your computer and come back. But sometimes, the computer users may want to turn it off and they might find that they are not able to do so.
Following points will tell you about how to turn off hibernation on Windows 7 and the problems due to which you cannot successfully do that:
- Windows 7 hibernate turn off
- Malware attack
- Secondary power management
- Try safe mode

In order to turn off Windows 7 hibernate feature, you will have to go to your command prompt with Admin rights. In order to do that, you will have to type CMD in your Start menu and hit 'Ctrl + Shift + Enter' together. Then type powercfg/hibernate off and then close the command prompt by typing exit and hitting 'Enter'. Another way to do that is to go to your Control Panel, go to Power Options, click on ‘Change when computer sleeps’ and then click on ‘Change Advanced Power Settings’. Under ‘Advanced Sleep’ options, expand sleep tree and turn off 'Hibernate' option.
