I can't see any of Hibernate function on my Windows 2000 Professional SP4. Maybe because of the hardware or the Windows itself not support for it.

Is there any 3rd party software that can hibernate my Windows?

Did you enable the hibernate options?

From the above link:

"Configure the Computer to Enter Hibernation
Use the following procedure to configure your computer to turn itself off after a period of inactivity and enter hibernation.
1.      Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2.      Double-click the Power Options icon, and then click the Hibernate tab.
...
"

I don't see the Hibernate tab. Only Power Schemes tab, Advanced and UPS. Nothing more.

Your BIOS must also support ACPI and APM for Hibernate options to work (You should be able to see these during the POST, or better yet, go through the BIOS settings on your machine).

This article goes through troubleshooting options for APM:

Ok, but I'm at home right now and the computer that we're talking about is in my office.

What if there's no options about ACPI and APM in the BIOS?

I'm asking this because I hate to power on my PC every morning.

If there are no options for ACPI or APM in the BIOS than your BIOS simply doesn't support Hibernate.  There's nothing you could really do until you either flash the BIOS or upgrade the motherboard.

Not that I know of.. It's strictly within ACPI, APM and the BIOS.
