During installation, you must select ACPI Computer as the system type. If you don't, then the ACPI drivers aren't installed and some options like that may not be available. Look in Device Manager, and in the Computer type see whether it says it's an ACPI computer.

You may also just need to enable it. It's in the Power options available from the Screensaver tab of display properties (stupid place for it of course).

You don't need ACPI for Hibernate. This is only for the Standby feature.

You may also just need to enable it. It's in the Power options available from the Screensaver tab of display properties (stupid place for it of course).

That's not the only place to find it. If you go into the Control Panel just click the Power Options icon. The button under the screensaver is a shortcut to this one. It's the same menu. If you want to enable Hibernate go into the Power Options menu and go to the APM tab. Enable APM if it's not already. Then you should see the Hibernate tab.
