I am running XP Home SP2.

When the power is turned on, it starts to go through the usual startup and when windows begins, it says it is going into hibernation mode and won't boot up. How do I get it out of hibernation?

I tried to remove the Hiberfil.sys file using the "Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu.", it get a little longer time to hibernate but not enough time for me to check the control panel for hibernation setting.

What could be wrong?

What is the make and model of your computer? If it's a laptop, are you seeing any problems with the charging of the battery?

I'm not sure if this'll work with hibernation, but try to run the command "shutdown -a" (without the quotes) from the Run dialog before it gets into hibernation. It may take a few tries to get it entered, but it'll usually stop shutdown events without any problem.

If you do get in, immediately turn all your power settings off (so it doesn't happen again). Then set them up again to see if the problem recurs.
