When my PC was docked in the network and tried to hibernate or logoff. Frequently I noticed that the logoff or hibernation process did not complete.

I also experienced closing Skype before Hibernating was helping a lot ?

So I gave it a try and indeed it was gone ! struggled with this for a few months Steaming mad
