On a laptop or desktop computer that supports either Advanced Power Management (APM) or Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI), there may be no Hibernate tab in the Power Options tool in Control Panel.
Windows 2000 makes its Hibernate feature available as part of the hardware abstraction layer (HAL); the feature is independent of APM or ACPI. Windows 2000 does not support OEM BIOS hibernation.
The following issues can prevent the Hibernate feature from being available:
Terminal Services has been enabled (this does not apply to Windows 2000 Professional). For additional information, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
