    No problem at all. I presume you have read what the hibernate facility is for, and what you will be without?
    Fwiw. If you do not know, this is how you turn it off:
    1. Open a Elevated Command Prompt. (Run as Administrator)
    2. To Enable Hibernate -
    A) In the elevated command prompt, type powercfg -h on and press Enter. (See screenshot below)

    B) Now set your Power Plan settings to the recommended settings for Hibernate
    C) Go to step 4.
    3. To Disable Hibernate -
    A) In the elevated command prompt, type powercfg -h off and press Enter.

    4. Close the elevated command prompt.
