Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook
If the system runs and runs, it is having trouble coming out of hibernation for any number of reasons, the most liekly of which is that it is trying to restart a device or reload a device driver that is not responding. If you recently installed any new hardware, remove it and test again. Software can lock it up, too, especially anything that thinks it is part of the OS but isn't (like encryption software, boot or partition managers, anti-virus and firewall software).
If worse comes to worse, turn off hibernation and reboot, or reinstall the operating system if you really need hibernation to work (most people don't).

and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell
Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support).
Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating
system when requested. Look for Manuals on the site and search them on hibernation.
Below is what your manual says to get out of hibernation you have to press the Power Button (very last paragraph at bottom).
Hibernate Mode Hibernate mode conserves power by copying system data to a reserved area on the hard drive and then completely turning off the computer. When the computer exits hibernate mode, it returns to the same operating state it was in before entering hibernate mode.
NOTICE: You cannot remove devices or undock your computer while your computer is in hibernate mode. Your computer enters hibernate mode if the battery charge level becomes critically low.
