    Firstly try holding the power button down for 6 seconds - the system should switch off completely. When restarted it *should* do a normal boot up.

    If it doesn't work then unplug the power cord and remove the battery, then put them back & try the restart.

    Let us know if this sorts it.

    I personally hate the hibernation facility as it's caused many problems, & tend to turn it off!

    can also be a sign of a failing hdd or a near full one

    if you know how, schedule it to do a chkdsk.

    [my computer ; right click on local disk c:; tools ; check now ; tick both boxes - will need a restart to do the check on next boot]
