Creting shorcut for hybernating your computer

Hibernation mode in a computer allows us to save a lot of power and we can restart the computer as its when it was turned off. Now you are going to learn how to create a short cut icon for hibernation mode, so that we can put our computer into the hibernation mode(in windows 7) as quick as possible.

1. In your desktop of the computer right-click in the empty space and click on "new short cut" form the context tab.

2. Now a window will pop up which will guide you in creating the short cut. In that field type
C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll, SetSuspendState 0,1,0

3. Now name the short cut as "Hibernate" or as you wish.

4. Now you can find the short cut on your desktop.

5.You might think that the icon does not have an attractive look. Now let us change the icon's appearance.

6.Click the Shortcut Tab and left click the Change Icon tab.

7. "In the Look for icons in this file " paste the following then hit enter.


8. Now a group of icons will pop up and from that you can select your desired icon.
