    No sleep for the Anniversary Update ? Really ?

    According to this article, MS is removing Sleep and Hibernate from Anniversary Update.

    My power option has always been ...........to go to sleep when close the lid.
    Wonder if that option will also be removed.

    If so, it will be a HUGE pain, because, on Restart, my laptop takes unreasonable time to go to sign in then desktop.
    I don't want to use netplwiz option, for security reason.


    By the way, the article report is erroneous in this point............

    quote : In late Insider builds for the Anniversary Update, Microsoft went one step further and also removed the sleep option from Start...... end quote.

    That's wrong. My insider build 14393.5 still has Sleep option.

    The article actually says:

    "When Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 it removed hibernate from the power options in the Start menu—though you could put it back. In late Insider builds for the Anniversary Update, Microsoft went one step further and also removed the sleep option from Start.

    We’re confirming with Microsoft that it has permanently removed the sleep option.No sleep, no hibernate?

    Related to the removal of sleep—and once again, we’re confirming this with Microsoft—the notion of hibernate is missing completely from the Anniversary Update. When you dig into the power settings in the control panel and the Settings app, there are no mentions of hibernate or sleep functions.

    This makes a certain amount of sense since hibernate and sleep were confusing terms for most Windows users. Nevertheless, it’s surprising to see that sleep and hibernate aren’t even available as power user options for those who want them."


    (The italics above are mine)

    It seems to me that there is doubt about SLEEP having been removed and that it might have been placed somewhere less easy to find?

    I am running the latest Insider Preview Version 1607 Build 14393.5. "Sleep" is present in the power options. "Hibernate" is not although there are still hibernate settings in the advanced power settings in Control Panel.

    This makes ZERO sense to me. I can, perhaps, accept that Sleep and Hibernate are being removed from Start but not removed completely. There is Hybrid Sleep (or whatever the f* is the favorite term of the week) in Win10. Perhaps that's going to be the only type of sleep.

    Regardless, a laptop on battery power has to be able to sleep/hibernate/rest/standby/whatever or the battery won't last.

    NOW, what really concerns me is the bit about Cortana being shoved down our throats - again. And while we are at it, does anyone else think that Cortana is just an extension of Bing (which I also dislike).

    That reminds me, on Insider Build the option of " Required a password on wake up" under Control Panel > Power Options is no longer available.

    Hello, JoeP.
    Like you, I am on .5. I find both Sleep and Hibernate in the Start menu, vizi:

    The "forced" Cortana and "possible" sleep removal makes me glad that I didn't upgrade all my computers to W10, I only upgraded 1 to see how things go.

    Look at Settings | Accounts | Signin options.

    The article has been amended to include the following

    Editor's note: This section originally stated that sleep and hibernate aren't available in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. That was incorrect; the author's system firmware doesn't support those functions, so they didn't appear in his power options. Sleep and hibernate will indeed still appear on most PCs with the Anniversary Update installed. We regret the error.

    Both sleep and hibernate have been removed for a long time now. All you have to do is right-click on the start menue and you see all options under Shut down or sign out. I actually mapped my power button to hibernate. Occasionally, I do a full shut down (or restart) when I feel I need to or when the OS update tells me to restart.

    You can configure what you want to see in the Start Icon power button including enabling Hibernate if not already shown:
