you say the problem is that it will not hibernate, check that you have the hyberfil file on the root of C. and check on the hibernation tab that enable hibernation is checked. although if hibernation is set it should be.
Also as the hibernation requires a block of available space on the hard drive at least equal to the space required for the ram memory to be written to the hard drive, check your drive fragmentation, slthough it would require serious fragmentation on a drive to prevent hibernation.
The usual problem is a device driver, that will not allow windows to close it.

When I restarted the system today a process had to be stopped by the system; I chose to end the task. Since the restart, the monitor did shut off and the system did hibernate by itself. It will stop hibernating in a day or two, guaranteed. Here is the event log from the restart:
Application popup: dwwin.exe - DLL Initialization Failed : The application failed to initialize because the window station is shutting down.
The Event log service was stopped.
This happens often when shutting down completely. I'm not sure if something like this would hinder monitor shut off.

On completion go event viewer, application on left pane, scroll in main window to winlogon entry, open it, check it is the chkdsk results and if you feel the need to, click once on left click on the double page symbol to the right below the up and down arrows, then right click and paste on your reply message.
After that run a system file checker which is sfc /scannow at the start and run.
It may well require the XP CD.
If you do not have it post back after seeing how far you can progress without it.

Go to: http://www.pcpitstop.com
Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDrive
RUN the test ANON
That is at the end of the page that opens - when you click the Overdrive test
If you do not wish to create a free user account, you can still run overdrive anonymously
The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.
When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.
Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration and present performance levels of your machine.
Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.
If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.
After reviewing the results we will be more informed and may be able to provide better recommendations for you to work towards improving your machine's performance.
While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. We prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine
Additionally to that you have not included in your reply how you wnet on with System file checker AND you have a 20Gb HDD with only 1.08 Gb of free space that is dangerously close to the acceptable limit which should be maintained at 2GB. MINIMUM
