Have you tried disabling SecureBoot in your UEFI/BIOS? You are currently running Windows 10? I would disable fast startup as shown here if you get the computer to boot by disabling it. This will at least let you recover your files with a linux disk in case the computer fails to boot.
I am not sure why you are getting random hibernations. You can change your power profile it disable hibernation.

Thank you for taking the time to answer me! I've tried to disable secure boot, but it's grayed out where it says [Enabled]. The only boot option it will allow me to change is Boot Mode [Quick] or [Diagnostics]. The computer came with Windows 8, but I'm almost certain I upgraded it to Windows 10 when the computer prompted.

When you tried to disable SecureBoot, were you in the Security Section?
Edit: In that section is there the ability to set an Administrative Password? Set an Adminstrative Password and write it down. Setting the password should allow you to disable SecureBoot.

See my edited post. Try setting an Administrator password in the Security Section. After setting a password see if you can then disable SecureBoot.

I had tried that earlier, but then I removed the password, but it's still showing it as enabled. Now I have to push enter to go into setup, instead of it taking me there automatically. The only option not grayed out in the security password section is the Hard Disk1 Password.

No, it won't let me add a password (although technically it's enabled, albeit with a blank password). The option is grayed out now. Thanks, I'll check out the Lenovo forum too.
