Where did my hibernate go?

Hi all. After an OS reinstall, Hibernate and Hybrid Sleep showed up for the
first time on my new Vista eMachine pc. I set Power Options to Sleep after
30 minutes, enabled Hybrid Sleep (tho I had no idea what it is, even after
reading the definition), and set it to Hibernate after an hour. Later that
day I came back to find my computer turned off - it had hibernated
successfully, saving my work to disk so that when I restarted it was on my
desktop as I left it. Hooray for Hibernate!

Two days later, both hibernate and hybrid sleep are gone from the Advanced
Power Options window, leaving only Sleep. Can anyone tell me where they
went. The only clue I have is that I deleted a hibernate temporary (cache?)
file that Disk Cleanup brought up yesterday.

If you run this command it should restore your hibernation.

powercfg.exe -h on
