WINDOW 8 SOLUTIONS (How to Increase booting rate and adding Hibernate to the Power Button Options)

Hi and welcome to this two-in-one tutorial. Today, I want to share how you can boost the booting time of your Window 8 enabled Computer(s) and how to add Hibernate to the power options.

In a common sense, a new version of software (or operating system, rather) always have some sophisticated interfaces, designs and features. This features kept the users coming back for more of the software’s services. But beside this good attributes, there were some challenges that may come our way while working with the latest version of these so-called software, and this challenges - of which long booting rate is a major part – may render the whole good part of the software frustrating, and until you find the right information about the problem, you might lose hope on your PC.
Apart from Window 8.1 and the beta version of Window 9, Window 8 is the latest version of Window with great features. But at times, you might work on your PC, shut it down and the next time you want to power it on, all you see is a grayish screen that keeps you waiting for HOURS!

To solve this kind of problem, please note that to troubleshoot/solve computer related challenges, you must first understand the possible causes of the problems before attempting to solve it because “you will solve what you know and leave what you don’t know unsolved”. Window 8 has a feature that updates your PC automatically, though this may be good, sometimes it’s frustrating to wait for hours before you can log in on your Personal Computer. That meant Window Updates at times slows down your PC with its schedules. Even, it wouldn’t tell you when it is downloading the updates! Apart from slow booting, this might also consume your bandwidth/data.

So, a problem known is half solved. All we need to do is disable the Window Updates and whenever we want to update the PC, we can do it conveniently.

A. To disable the Window Updates,
1. Go to Control Panel (In My computer, click on control panel in the bar above)


 2. Choose System and Security



3. Click on Windows Update option of the window

  4. Choose Change settings


 5. From the Important Updates menu, choose ‘Check for updates, but let me choose whether to download and install them’. Click ‘OK


B. The second of this tutorial is to add a Hibernate option to the Power options

1. Hover on the battery icon on the taskbar. Now right-click on it to choose ‘Power Options’

2. With the new window open, click on ‘Choose what closing the lid does’ in the Left Side bar of the window. That took us to another view.

3. On the main screen, click on ‘Change settings that are currently unavailable’. That made some options clickable. Check the box for Hibernate, Click on Save Changes to save the changes

Now, go and check your power options, you should find Hibernate there.
