This is usually caused by a corrupt hibernation.sys file; for whatever reason, bad disk cluster, incorrect hibernation/awake, etc, etc.

The easiest way to attempt to resolve this, is to remove this from your system, and then let Windows recreate it. To do so, try the following:

Press 'Windows Key + R', this will bring up the ''Run...' dialogue.
Type: cmd and hit enter.
Type: powercfg -h OFF and hit enter
Reboot your computer
Again, Press 'Windows Key + R', this will bring up the ''Run...' dialogue.
Type: cmd and hit enter.
Type: powercfg -h ON and hit enter
Reboot your computer
Windows will now rebuild the hibernation.sys file.

Hope that helps! ;-)
