Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.
Windows XP Users
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.
Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users
To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.
Fig. 1. Windows VISTA Start Menu. To put Windows VISTA to Sleep or Hibernate, click the small arrow head right next the Lock icon then click Sleep or Hibernate.
Fig. 2. Windows 7 Start Menu. To put Windows 7 to Sleep or Hibernate, click the small arrow head right next the word Shut Down then click Sleep or Hibernate.
You probably have a sticking hibernate, or sleep button. Near the hinge, there is a tiny pin looking thing sticking up. When you shut the computer, this presses against a switch below the case and puts the computer into sleep or hibernate mode. If this sticks, it won't boot up right. Shut the computer down and use canned air to blow out at the pin opening to clear any debris.

To get the computer back up again and out of hibernation you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.
Also the following may be of interest. You must be logged on as an administrator or member of either the Administrators or Power Users group in order to successfully complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, the forced network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure. In this case please consult your Network Administrator.
Click Start, then Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box. If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
Click Start, and then click Shut Down then select Hibernate. If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional with Fast User Switching turned on, the Shut Down menu will present the options to Stand By, Turn Off, or Restart your computer. Hold down the Shift key, and the Stand By button will change to Hibernate.

Once you get the computer back running again you may
want to disable hibernation if it seems like its going to keep
happening. Go to Start, Settings Control Panel or Start, Control Panel
and go to the Power Options icon. Change the hibernation section to
never. You may want to try standby as an alternative. Standby saves all
your running applications and documents into RAM while hibernate saves
them to the hard drive. Hibernate uses less power from your battery,
but it will take you considerably longer to get the computer back up.
If you always plug the computer in then you may want to disable standby
and hibernate since you really dint need them while plugged in.
I'm not a big fan of using hibernate or standby, I've seen it cause too many problems, such as the one you're having. I shut my machine down when I'm done, or let it run if I'm coming back within a reasonable amount of time. I've also seen hibernation or standby create operating system errors or glitches, and premature hard drive failure. If the machine is working properly other than hibernation/standby you should shut the hibernation off and just shut the machine down when not in use. If you're getting this error when using the power button to turn off the computer, then the operating system has glitched or is corrupt and needs to be reistalled. If you need anymore help with this let me know.

here is a temporary fix, but you may like it as a permanent one. Use the Windows hibernate mode. It actually works every time! Windows makes a "System screen shot" and stores it on hard drive and then powers off. Just be aware that you must ensure enough hard drive space for this. I am using this mode every day now.
I think your system is trying to reject the power-saving features selected in Windows or at CMOS settings. Try turning off (or disabling) one feature at a time. I still think hibernate is the way to go. Here is a useful tip: to force hibernate (after it has been enabled) select START-SHUT DOWN and hover over STANDBY button and then hit the SHIFT key. The STANDBY button will turn into the HIBERNATE button. This is a quick way to enter hibernate. Remember to enable SYSTEM RESTORE mode so that if anything goes wrong during this "experiment", you can easily restore Windows system. I also use RESTORE but I also "clean house" once a month by turning it off and Disk scan and defrag and turning it back on.
