How can I enable the hibernate mode on a Server 2008 R2 server?

I have Server 2008 R2 loaded on a desktop at home.

I need to be able to put the server into hibernate mode so that I can power the server down while I'm not using it and then be able to power the server back on and resume at the point where I had last hibernated the server.

Will I be able to hibernate the server 2008 R2 server while several Hyper-V operating systems are running?

If you have Hyper-V enabled, Hibernation CANNOT be enabled.

Your VMs should automatically get put into a saved state when you shut down, so they won't need to go through a full reboot cycle. You can do your "work" from a VM, so that can get saved when you shut down the host. It will take a few minutes to boot the host and resume the VMs.
