how to stop computer from completing hibernation mode

The hibernation feature (a good thing, no doubt) is driving me crazy because I can't figure out how to stop the process of "going into hibernation mode"!
There's a count down screen showing you how many nano-seconds you have until the computer hibernates....but no way to reverse the process!  I have to let it go into full hibernation & then press the "on" button to resume what I was doing ---  this is wasting too much time or I need drugs to calm down....whatever, I seek guidance from a more highly developed being.

Hello bcb123 =)

If im understanding it correclty. you are getting that hibernation message even when you are doing work on your system and evenn when on Cntrol panel>Power Options the hibernation is disabled.... ??

If yes then is it a laptop systsem? if Yes then is the battery fine enough?
and if its desktop then are the drivers for motherboard, video card and BIOS are up-to-date ??

Lol - you can't call Sheharyaarsaahil a more highly developed being - eager and quick yes, maybe even superb with viruses and malware - but highly developed?????

Sheharyaarsaahil - forgive me cos I think you're great - it just made me smile, although I have been giving you some tongue-in-cheek grief lately - I am just jealous because you are so good! Have a great weekend !

Then message pops up when I leave the computer for 5 or so minutes --- which is OK, I could adjust the time it takes to activate hibernation.  But, my question really has to do with stopping the process once the "countdown to hibernation" has started.  I.e., hitting the "esc" button or "delete" button -- both of which do nothing to impede the progress.
My Dell Latitude D800 is only 3 months old & battery is doing fine.  I downloaded the latest BIOS when I got the laptop.

Have you checked your settings in control panel, power options as Sheharyaarsaahil suggested - you should see a number of tabs, one of which is hibernation - disable it and reboot to be thorough,

OK -- so there is no way to stop the process once it has started its' countdown.  Are you both are suggesting that I just disable the hibernation mode??  Is that a "good thing"?

Im not aksing to not use Hibernation, its a good feature when you are away from the system, but what i do with my system is to Disable Automatic Hibernation, and then when i know that im going away from the system, i manually put it in the Hibernation mode.... and i like it in this way :)

Aha!  So how do you manually put it in the Hibernation mode?  I think we are getting somewhere.....
