Windows 7 Pro resume fail screen

One of my desktops is newly set up with Windows 7 Pro. This afternoon it gave a grey screen when the person was back from lunch.  The screen said:

Windows Resume Loader

The last attempt to resume the system from it's previous location failed.  Attempt to resume again?

Fortunately, it did resume. This was after the box had gone into hibernation while she had been at lunch.  The screen made me think we were about to have issues.  Should I be concerned? Is there something I need to tell her to do to bring it up after lunch?  She said she was just shaking the mouse to wake it up, I don't know if she was hitting any other keys. She was not pressing the power up button on the front of the machine, like I have asked her to. It is my understanding that when you want to bring it up from hibernation you want to press the power up button to wake it up, right?

Depends on your power saving settings of your machine. Usually, with users/machines having this kind of issue, i deactivate the hdd sleep mode if computer is active for X minutes, so the machine stays awake, only screen saver activate in case of inactivity.

I have it set to Sleep never, Hibernate after 30 minutes.  Also, in Personalization, I have the screen saver set to come on after 10 minutes and require password logon page to get back on.
