    Every time when I press the power button, my surface pro (2017) goes to hibernate. So I've tried to change it to Sleep, and I discovery there is no Sleep option in the new surface pro 2017.


    C:\windows\system32>powercfg -a
    The following sleep states are available on this system:
    Hibernate
    Fast Startup
    The following sleep states are not available on this system:
    Standby (S1)
    The system firmware does not support this standby state.
    Standby (S2)
    The system firmware does not support this standby state.
    Standby (S3)
    The system firmware does not support this standby state.
    Standby (S0 Low Power Idle)
    Hybrid Sleep
    Standby (S3) is not available.

    No sleep and no Hybrid sleep in Surface Pro (2017)?

    I see the same Standby S1-S2-S3 and Hybrid Sleep S3 unavailability that you have, but on my new SP the "Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) Network Connected" classification is listed as available above Hibernate. That seems to be the state I default to from the Sleep option on the on-screen power button, and when I fold the type cover over the screen or press the physical button.

    Same for mine... Low Power Idle available.

    When I initially set it up, I did have to go into the additional power settings (the old settings, not the new settings) to set the sleep mode (I think, going on memory from a month ago, but I'd check that).
