I could not find any hibernate settings in the Power Scheme, so i tried the other way which was to enable it via command line (cmd.exe).
The command is "powercfg -hibernate on".
Upon pressing enter i got an error message which ive highlighted in red.

Microsoft Windows [Version 5.2.3790]
(C) Copyright 1985-2003 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Admin>powercfg -hibernate on
Hibernation failed with the following error: The request is not supported.

The following items are preventing hibernation on this system.
The system is running in PAE mode, and hibernation is not allowed in PAE
mode.

C:\Documents and Settings\Admin>

What is PAE?

The power function in the BIOS is currently set to PO4 or POS4 i carnt remember but i know your unable to change the settings after XP is installed..

Could anyone help me.

Also on a side note does anyone know how to schedule a boot at a certain time. I want my PC to start up early in the morning but i carnt be arsed to get up and switch it on. :p

Ive posted in the XP section so i would think the OS im talking about is XP. But sorry for the confusion.
Its XP-64-bit. Its strange tho when i first installed XP i was able to put my PC into hibernate but after a while i had no use for it so i disabled it. Now i want it and it can't be enabled. :O

After reading about PAE i know how to disable it. But i still dont fully understand what it does. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms791485.aspx
Could someone please explain it for me.
Thanks
