Windows xp hibernation

When I put my xp in hibernation the fans stay on. I have to hold the power button to get the fans to shut off. What's wrong?

Fans not shutting off during hibernation with Windows xp.

The operating system is Windows xp but the computer was assembled (not by me) from parts. I'm not sure what information you need and where it is in the computer.

Some self built desktop and a forgotten driver. These are the worst for hibernation and sleep so its probably best to forget about hibernation.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
