Enabling Hibernate In Windows 8

What is Hibernate?

Before Moving Forward let us have a Short Explaination About What Hibernate actually is.

Hibernation is powering down a computer while retaining its state. Upon hibernation, the computer saves the contents of its random access memory (RAM) to a hard disk or other non-volatile storage. Upon resumption, the computer is exactly as it was upon entering hibernation. When used to save power, hibernation is similar to sleep mode and saves more power at the cost of slower resumption.

Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power.
