Windows 7 hibernate once take too long

I clicked hibernate and I started to use my iPad, after that I leave it and go back to the computer and then I saw the power still lights. I move my mouse and press some keys and thought if i has click sleep instead of hibernate. Num lock and Caps lock still responds. I manually turned it off and entered safe mode with networking and it works fine. And then I shut the computer down.
This is the first time it happened like this. Oh my god and please help!

Check your Power Options to make sure Hibernate is set correctly under Advanced Settings for your Power Plan.

Update your display driver as this is the main cause for sleep and hibernate issues.

Disable everything in msconfig>Startup and >Services (after ticking Hide all MS Services) except your AV which should be a free lightweight one like MSE or Avast.

Report back results after doing this and several reboots.

Recycling a movie from my harddrive is taking long long time.
Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?

Extremely long shut down & hibernate
My favorite rig, the HP laptop mentioned in my specs, takes over 5 minutes to hibernate and anything between 5 and 10 minutes to shut down. Clearing Page File when shutting down is disabled as this is often mentioned to be the culprit for long shut down times. Absolutely no other issues....
