Enabling hibernation on a Windows Server 2012 Essentials system

The command shutdown /h can be used to hibernate a Microsoft Windows system. If you run the command on a Windows Server 2012 Essentials system which hasn't had hibernation mode enabled, you will see the following message:

PS C:\Users\User> shutdown /h
Hibernation is not enabled on this system. You must enable hibernation in order to use the -h option.

To enable hibernation, you can issue the command powercfg /hibernate on from a PowerShell prompt. However, you may see the message below when you enter the command:

PS C:\Users\User> powercfg /hibernate on
An unexpected error condition has occurred.  Unable to perform operation.  You may not have permission to perform this o

To enable hibernation, right-click on the PowerShell icon, which looks like a button with a ">_" in it, then choose "Run as Administrator" and then issue the powercfg command.
