    Apparently InstantGo/Connected Standby tablets won't hibernate as standard! They can be made to do so but be aware that doing so creates hiberfil.sys and wastes what could be precious disk space.

    To enable hibernate open a Command Prompt as Administrator, type "powercfg -h on" and then press Enter.

    You can set Power options -> Hibernate on Power button and lid close or you can make a shortcut to Hibernate on the desktop

    Target - %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Hibernate
    Start in - %windir%

    To disable Hibernate and delele hyberfil.sys then type "powercfg -h off" at a Adiminstrator Command Prompt.

    You're welcome. You can set it up to use OneDrive do the notes are synced between your devices.

    I knew of the app ages ago but would have had no use for it on a laptop, so I had long since forgotten about it. If this is on Win 10 it could be cool to use in tablet mode.
    How do you configure it to sync via OneDrive?

    I just asked Cortana to do it, but I had to ask very politely before she changed the settings.

    Only Cortana can do that.

    I suppose that is one reason to upgrade to Windows 10.

    Not working for me, for some reason. Elevated command prompt seems to register though.
