Can you manually set it to hibernate? Try shutting down the computer, and in the box where it says "Standby" "Turn Off" and "Restart" are you able to click on the "Standby" button? If so, press the "Shift" key and the "Standby" should change to "Hibernate". Does the computer hibernate this way?
If not, then I'd suspect that there's a minor corruption of your video drivers (this accounts for most hibernation/standby issues that I've seen). The "fix" is to uninstall your video drivers and then install a freshly downloaded copy of the latest version for your system.
If you can't locate the latest video drivers for your system - post back with the exact make and model of your laptop and we'll see what we can find.
