Vista/Win7: Disable hibernation

I love this feature, but some people dont need it. The other day I needed to install the Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 and it frikken needed 5gb of free space on my C drive. The setup package is only 265mb! WTF?

Anyways, I could get enough space from temporarily removing my hibernation files, so off I went exploring the intricate Control Panel labyrinth.

To my surprise, its been removed since the Vista days. How stupid. Now it can only be accessed through the command line.

  • Run "Command Prompt" with administrator access.
  • (Right click and "Run as administrator")
  • To enable, type "powercfg -H on"
  • To disable, type "powercfg -H off"
