How to enable hibernate in Windows Vista

Apparently, Windows Vista prefers to use a bastardisation of standby and hibernate as a default, storing memory contents to disk as well as low powered state in RAM.

It doesn't help much if you want to power down your machine to transport it to another location though!

To re-enable hibernate use the following command as an administrator:
    powercfg -h on

See this KB article for more information.
