I had this problem once, the following fix worked but the problem could be a number of things. Are you stil using a RAID?

"Run command prompt as administrator and type in

powercfg -h off

after that reboot the computee and open up command prompt again (same as above) and type

powercfg -h on

You should now be able to hibernate the computer and boot from hibernation without receiving the error message."

You might also look at updating your BIOS and your chipset drivers depending on what OS you're using...?

If you are running 32-bit Windows XP, you can see problems like this if there are bad sectors on the hard disk that the system attempts to write hibernation data to. Do a thorough disk scan. Windows Vista and Windows 7 both are more aggressive in maintaining the disks and will usually catch these problems before it effects the system performance.
