    Hello Aaron

    As you stated this issue did not always exist and it is an unusualy Hibernation issue I would recommend that you follow Step 6. in the HP Support document titled "Resolving Problems with Sleep and Hibernate Modes (Windows 7)" linked below. This will show you how to use Windows System Restore to put your computer back to a time when your Hibernation issue did not exist and still allow you to keep your files.
