I don't know your PC type, but if you have to much memory installed Hibernation won't work.
Some 4GB is the maximum supported size.

Some powersupplies don't support hibernation either.

Hibernation can drive you into trouble especially whit h a power-dropout.
Windows writes the whole mem. content to the drive, but this fly by option is destroyed with a powerdropout or another failure like disk-problems. Run Control disk and repair.

Hibernation is not completely safe.
Only to be used when it's 'temporarily.

Hibernate - Change Size of hiberfil.sys File

Perhaps this will give you a clue

That is not true...

Hibernation will NOT lose the Windows session if the power goes out.
Sleep WILL lose the Windows session if the power goes out.

HYBRID SLEEP is the best of both worlds - it Sleeps and Hibernates.
With Hybrid, if the PC is sleeping and the power goes out, it will resume from Hibernate.

As the OP is getting BSOD's, I suggest posting in BSOD Help and Support - Windows 7 Help Forums following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions
