Default Restoring Hibernate function

Im having a issue with the hibernate function on my laptop.
It was working fine, then i made the C:\ Partition larger because i was installing a game that had problems running so i had to install it to the C directory.

I have plenty of space available on the C drive, but every hibernate function no longer works. I changed the advanced power settings so that when i close the lid, push the power button, or hibernate from the start menu the laptop is ment to hibernate, instead though it just logs off. Except the power button it puts the laptop to sleep instead of hibernate.

Ive tried disabling the hibernate function from a command prompt as admin powercfg.exe /hibernate off and this removed the hiberfile.sys file from the C drive
Then i restarted my laptop.
Then Re enabled the Hibernate function the same way

But the same thing happens the laptop logs off instead of hibernates
and the power button puts the laptop to sleep

Any thoughts?

Another bit of info. I read a instruction to open a cmd.prompt as admin and type bcdedit -enum all

I done this and I get a message C:\WINDOWS\system32>bcdedit -enum all
The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
The system cannot find the file specified.

Is that part of the problem or could it be a registry thing?

@Concerned User
When browsing the internet i did find that post, but when i read down it further i noticed that he mentioned when he added the drive letter to the hidden partition the computer hibernated and when he removed the drive letter it stopped working again. I gave it a try anyway, Glad to say the problem is now fixed, thanks for your help.

I'll give the instruction here in case there of use to someone else.

What i done first was check the registry and added a entry to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Power

I also noticed that all the other entries had been disabled. With the Value 0
I changed all the disabled entries to the value 1

And i added the entry Dword HibernateEnabled with a value 1

Then i followed these instructions
I loaded a partition tool and added a drive letter to the hidden partition.

1.Run CMD.EXE as administrator
2.Run the following command: bcdedit -enum all
Look for "Resume from Hibernate" in the output from the command above(example below):
Resume from Hibernate
3. Once you have found it, copy the value for identifier (in this example - {3d8d3081-33ac-11dc-9a41-806e6f6e6963})
4. Run the following command: bcdedit /deletevalue {3d8d3081-33ac-11dc-9a41-806e6f6e6963} inherit
5. Test hibernation

Loaded the Partition tool again to remove the drive letter from the hidden partition.
And rebooted
After rebooting put the laptop to hibernate and everything was working propyl again.

I checked the registry entries again and all the ones that were disabled that i gave the value of 1 now have now been modified by the system.
