Why doesn't Hibernate work any more (Windows 7)?

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. When I put my laptop in hibernate mode, it turns off then turns back on automatically in the next moment.

I restored the computer to factory settings and it seemed to fix the problem at the time, but after a week I am facing this issue again. I have updated my video driver and also checked the BIOS. This is a recurring problem.
