I’m trying to avoid hibernation and I believe I’ve got it. My last manouver has been “powercfg.exe /hibernate off” that has got to delete C:\hiberfil.sys . According to some MS page, it’s impossible to hibernate w/o this file.
But, after 30 minutes of inactivity, my Windows 10 (or modern) computer seems to turn off (the fans and the power led go off). If I move the mouse, it goes on, asks for credentials and shows the desktop as I left it. The same as my Windows 7 (or ancient) computer with more ancient hardware, except that this one looks on while suspended, with the fans running and the power led blinking.
In the modern computer (giving for sure that it isn’t hibernating now as it hasn’t got C:\hiberfil.sys, the alternative is too twisted lol), you cannot tell suspensions from hibernations (hybrid hibernation is disabled too, I had disabled it manually beforewards, and Windows told it was disabling it when I run “powercfg.exe /hibernate off”).
Some users like me are searching how to avoid hibernations that we think are happening despite our settings against, because suspensions look like hibernations with our more capable hardware. Am I right assuming this?
