    Hello, you can visit the following link and read about the recommended settings for sleep/hibernation.  My advice is to follow the steps that refer to your case and check you settings against the recommended ones.  Try to use the recommended settings and then let us know how it went.

        check the power schemes you defined is prpoer or not.
        if this doesn not solve it.

        Restore you pc to a restore point created before the date on which the problem first occurred. with system restorein case if you want to find it..go to run in start menu and type%SystemRoot%system32restorerstrui.exe

    Find a Linux Live CD Boot from it, open your system disk, and delete hiberfil.sys. Then reboot.

    Check in your Advanced Power Options that Power saver Require a password on wakeup Setting is No.
    Under Sleep, Sleep after is Never along with Hibernation

    A software can also be responsible that means modified the registry, follow the below article,

    When you try to log on to a Windows Vista-based computer, you briefly receive a "Welcome" message, and then you are logged off

    You need to restore the file userinit.exe to C:WINDOWSsystem32 and restore the Registry data:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon]
