Does it happen in specific condition like when battery is low?
Did you make any change to your PC, before this problem start?

Hi Gspratap-8386,

It sounds like there's a power-saving setting switched on that has carried over from Windows 7 to WIndows 11. To switch off hibernation, please do the following:

Launch the Start menu, search for Control Panel and select the Best match.
Click on System and Security, and then under Power Options, click on Change what the power buttons do.
Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.
Under Shutdown settings, deselect the Hibernate checkmark and then finally click on Save changes to enable hibernate mode on Windows 11.

Here’s how you can adjust the hibernation settings on Windows 11:

Open the Start menu, search for Control Panel and select the Best match.
Click on System and Security and then click on Power Options.
For the currently selected power plan, click on Change plan settings and then select Change advanced power settings to open the Power Options dialogue box.
Expand the Sleep options and then expand Hibernate after options.
Adjust the required On Battery and Plugged in hibernation mode timings.
To make your changes permanent, click on Apply and then click OK.
