Bringing back the "hibernate after" option in Windows 11

Post by jmt356 »

Windows 10 had an option to "hibernate after [x] minutes" in the power options. Windows 11 did away with this. I want to bring it back.

According to https://superuser.com/questions/1738274 ... windows-11, the following will bring it back:

From Admin Command Prompt, run:
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\9d7815a6-7ee4-497e-8888-515a05f02364" /v "Attributes" /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f

Can anyone confirm that this registry change is safe and works?
Regards,

JMT

I have no experience with this myself, but the same is posted in How to Add or Remove "Hibernate after" from Power Options in Windows. Brink is a well-known Windows expert.

An alternative: How to set Windows 11 to hibernate automatically (hibernate after).
Best wishes,
Hans

Entering this command at an elevated Command Prompt did the trick:

REG ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\9d7815a6-7ee4-497e-8888-515a05f02364 /v Attributes /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f
