Hi Gauri. Welcome to Geeks to Go. I found this at M$. Take a look and see if it applies: http://support.micro...kb;en-us;304754
Do a search on M$ knowledge base for hybernation and you will get 20 hits. Take a look at those if this doesn't help.

To slove this make sure that all drivers are installed. If you still haveing problems post back. Just head to the companys website, from where you got the laptop and download the lastest drivers. The most likely driver causing the problem would be the video driver. I dont know why video drivers would not allow you to place the system in hibernation, but it does. On all of the laptops that I have installed Windows XP on, this fixes the problem. Hope that this helps.
