Often it's related to the Fast Boot system. That's just a new name for a Hibernation file. They get corrupted. While it's on, hit the full reset button, or pull the battery out of it. This will force a new hiber file to be built. Alternate is to turn off Fast Boot and reboot a couple times, and a new file will be created. If that doesn't solve it, will need to investigate other possible causes.
