Trying to fix Battery Drain: Windows 11 Hibernate When Lid Closed

Love the laptop, battery life is my main issue.

I’m trying to get my laptop to Hibernate when I close the lid. Hopefully this will save the battery life while it’s not in use.

I’ve gone through all the Power Options → Advanced Settings and have no option to set the behavior when I close the lid.

Here is my System Information:

Not a problem I use it all the time. Will update with instructions.

  • Open Control Panel
  • Power options

I found it, it was under hardware and sound->power options (like you said)

I didn’t realize there were 3 places to change power settings.
