free up 4gb of space by deleting hibernate

open up command prompt (cmd) and type this in to disable hibernate powercfg –h off

If you're doing more than one PC, like if you're a PC tech, or an IT Manager, then you can put that command into a batch file.
Here's the batch file:

@Echo off
Rem: this program will disable Hibernation in windows 7.
powercfg -h off
Echo: Reboot. Then check for presence of Hiberfil.sys file in root directory.

If it's your own batch file and you're going to use it more than once, you can leave out the last two lines.
I have this batch file on my Utilities CD and I use it often.

Cheers mates!
Old Timer :)
