unable Hibernate

Windows system error. Insufficient system resources exsist to complete API. This is what I got when trying to put my PC to Hibernate. How can I remedy this ? What does it means,'system resources'? please

Go to Control Panel, Appearance and Themes; Screen Saver; Power; Hibernate.

Ensure that Hibernate is ticked and also ensure that 'Free disk space' is greater than 'Disk space required to hibernate'.

Also - do you have a USB mouse? If so, ensure that it is NOT set to bring the computer out of standby. If it is, I've found that it will prevent hibernation. This is because in the few seconds before the PC goes into hibernation it performs a momentary check of all USB and other ports - effectively it completely powers up again a for a brief period of time.

If you have a USB mouse set to bring the PC out of standby, that brief power up acts as if you had 'waggled' the mouse and, thus, standby and hibernation are both interrupted.
