Windows 10 Sleep mode, turn off power, start up again

I have a desktop pc with windows 10 installed. I'm using sleep mode to power the pc down and have all programs active again after I power it up again. This works great, but if I shutdown the power to the pc, the pc will load from scratch, with all programs closed (and not just wakeup again). I have read about hibernation mode etc. but this option isn't really available.

I would really like to turn off the power during the night, so is there any way I can activate hibernation mode?


Have you tried powercfg /HIBERNATE /? already in a command prompt as admin ?

Cheers, S
