    I just setup a Bootcamp Windows 7 Ultimate partion on my 13'' MBP. When I click on the orb, I see the power off and hibernate options; the 'sleep' option is greyed out. In 'Power Options', the sleep option is fully ommitted. If I close the lid of the machine it goes enters hibernation.

    Any way to fix this? I've seen some threads on the Apple support site about users reporting similar problems.

    IIRC if you disable hibernation (google), the sleep function returns.

    All that did was getting rid of the hibernation option. All that's left now is the shut down option.

    Sorry, I have sleep on mine and disabled hibernation so thought that was the tweak
