Hibernation is a process like 'Shutdown', If you hibernate your computer, your computer will saves your session and turns off the computer. When you turn on your computer, then Windows will restores your session. That is if you hibernate with some open applications like web browsing, playing song, playing games etc, then when you turn on your computer, all your applications are still there without any changes...! That is the peculiarity of hibernate option. Actually at the time of Hibernation, Windows will copy the Data of RAM to Hard Disc, at the time of reopen of your computer, Windows will return that Data to RAM again.
Usually in Windows 7 Hibernate option is already Off. So you cannot find Hibernate option in your power button list.
