    Hi Guys,

    Anyone running windows 8.1 on the surface 3 pro know how to change when the computer hibernates? it currently goes into hibernation mode after 2 hours of no use, and i would like to change that to 1 hour.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not very familiar with Windows 8.1, but you should be able to do it from the Control Panel-
    Control Panel > Hardware and Sounds > Power Options > on the left side, go to either "Choose when to turn off the display" or "Change when the computer sleeps". I think this is what you're looking for. ok around once you reach Power Options.
    Good luck!

    This *might* be the answer you're looking for, but I think it'll hibernate your Surface even when in use. Never tried these setting out. Other than that, I have no clue. Hopefully someone else knows the answer...

    Thanks again for your reply, but i don't have that "sleep" option that you first click on. I have seen that before on my desktop, but for some reason i don't have it on my surface. strange.pic2.jpg

    Strange indeed. I'd expect to see that on SP3...

    You could upgrade to Windows 10 :)

    i downgraded to windows 8.1 a few days ago, windows 10 was killing my battery. i will give it another go in a few months once some of the bugs have been fixed, and hopefully that will fix my issue.

    really appreciate your help, have a nice day.
