A Desktop Shortcut To Hibernation

The Shutdown.exe command can shut down or restart your computer, optionally forcing it to shut down even if some programs attempt to prevent it. But it does not include an option to to hibernate. To create a shortcut, right-click on an empty space on the Desktop and select 'New->Shortcut'. In the 'Type the location of the item' box copy this text:

rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll SetSuspendState

Click on the Next button. In the 'Type a name for this shortcut' box type 'Hibernate' then click on the Finish button. If the shortcut does not work, then you will probably need to configure your computer to enable hibernation. Click on the Start button and select 'Settings'. click on 'Control Panel' then double-click on the 'Power Options' icon. Click on the 'Hibernate' tab and make sure the 'Enable Hibnernate' checkbox is checked.
