How do I disable hibernation for Sleep?


Recommended Posts

Hibernation is enabled by default after any fresh installation of Apple's OS; sometimes, it's even re-enabled after an update. Although Clover has supported hibernation for some time, it can still cause issues on Hackintoshes and it's often desirable to disable hibernation in order to revert to plain old sleep.


This is achieved through the following Terminal commands:

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0


To delete the sleep file:

sudo rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage


To point the sleep file towards null device (though sleep file may still re-appear):

sudo pmset -a hibernatefile /dev/null


To verify hibernation setup:

pmset -g
