Have you checked your settings in Control Panel >> Power Options to see if Hibernate is enabled and Stand by is configured?

the only options are power schemes, advanced, and the Battery backup setup

What make/model is your computer. E.g Dell Latitude 110L.

You can set your system standby under the Power Schemes tab.

Let me know the model and I will research further. Also, have you ever gotten the hibernate tab to show up, even before reinstalling windows?

Thanks,
E

Just had the same problem on my Dell laptop after a fresh install. As soon as I installed a correct (Nvidia) Video Controller driver (and some others, but I think that's the one that made the difference) and Restarted I had Standby and Hibernate available.
