Xps 13 9343 - No Hibernate option in power settings?

JuicyBH 19 13 August 16, 2015 at 10:50 AM
Just got this xps 13 9343, can't seem to activate hibernate mode. I've done what I can find through google, but I still don't see any hibernate option in power settings. I tried these solutions yesterday, don't remember the exact details but basically:

-Power settings in Control Panel - Change Settings that are Unavailable - there is no Hibernate option
-Regedit to local machine, changed "ShowHibernate" to 1
-Command prompt powercfg /hibernate /on
-Regedit add relevent entry in Explorer somewhere for ShowHibernate where ShowLockOptions (or similar) is in the same path
-Microsoft Fixit unavailable for my os

XPS 13 9343 with 8.1 Pro with 5600u/QHD/8GB ram/256gb hd. Lastly, I didn't check beforehand, but when I press Windows key to go to Windows 8 'start' screen, if I click the power button there is hibernate option. I want to be able to close the lid/press the power button and have the computer hibernate.

Any other options I can try?

Still looking for an answer to this. I think it might have something to do with Intel Rapid Start/Intel Rapid Storage - however there is no direct option available in the BIOS to disable the Intel rapid start. Ideas??

Is Sleep better?
No, sleep drains a lot power, and is pretty pointless today with SSD.

I can't be the only one with this issue...?

so you are not only having hibernation problem, and sleep problem too.

sleep should shut off everything except RAM, only use couple watts, maybe less for your model
