Microsoft Windows xp home edition

Specs: Windows XP, Intel dual Core/4g
I have a peculiar situation in Windows XP Home. On finishing a session I choose Hibernate and the computer says it is going into hibernation and closes down in the normal manner. When I re-start the computer using the computer Power button, following the BIOS screen I get the message ‘Preparing to Hibernate’ followed by a log-in screen with my name on it. As I am the Administrator and there are no other ‘Guests’ set up why do I get this message. This is new. I never used to get this situation of having to log-in until a short time ago. I have checked the User Account in Control panel and all is how it should be.Any ideas how to cure this please?

If your question is regarding a desktop computer, the solution is simple - don't use Hibernate (or Standby). Those features were designed for laptops & other mobile devices to preserve battery power, not for desktops. If you're trying to be GREEN, adjust your power scheme settings.

Thank you for your reply. Yes I have a desktop PC and have always liked being able to quickly return from where I last left off; saves opening up programs. I would still like to know why I have the problem of having to log-in on start-up from hibernation which I never had before. Some glitch has appeared on my system.
