I would a script that can be entered as a Start > Run command to put the computer into hibernate mode.

I have done this in Windows Vista; I just need the Windows 7 command to start the hibernate command.

Shutdown /h /t 1 /c "I'm packing it in for the winter!"

Don't have too much fun now edit

Humm, looks like Hibernate doesn't record a comment.

So it is just Shutdown /h

+1 for the "I'm packing it in for the winter!" FINALLY someone on this site with a sense of humor. I am surprised they have not edited your answer! :) – KCotreau Jul 26 '11 at 10:43

tried Shutdown /h /t 1 /c – Bill Jul 27 '11 at 7:09
command prompt ran, no turn off – Bill Jul 27 '11 at 7:10
Ya, I edited it. You can't put fun comments with your /h – surfasb Jul 27 '11 at 9:13
