Disabling hiberfil.sys on Windows 7

Hibernation is enabled by default on Windows 7 and Vista. But on a desktop system you usually don’t make use of hibernation. To disable it run a┬ácommand line┬áprompt (Windows Key + R, type cmd) and enter the following command: powercfg.exe -h off.

On systems with a lot of memory this can free up a lot of disk space.
