How can I get the Hibernate button next to the Stand By button? MS Help and Support said SP3 already had the hotfix, but you need to "enable it". I have Windows XP Pro SP3.

Here is an image:

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Wi ndows\System\Shutdown
Create a DWORD value named ShowHibernationButton and set its data to 1.

Don't have HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\System\Shutdown only HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\System\

Ok, you'll have to resort to this then:

If you have SP3, it may not work. It'll say its newer than that update

So, all you have to do is the registry stuff

You hold down the shift key and the standby button changes into a hibernate button

The link Blam posted works as well. It'll add the hibernate button.

So 4 buttons appear on shutdown, not 3

Obviously, hibernate has to be enabled so you can select it

he knows that-he just wants it to be next to the standby button

Just an extension to that-if you find that it is disabled, go to cmd>Type in "powercfg /h on"

Press enter, and it'll be enabled.

You could also try the "Vista Start Menu" program that has the hibernate button on the start menu

thank you SO much blam6! I had already read that link, but the cmd>Type in "powercfg /h on" worked perfectly! Once again thank you!
