When I want the machine to hibernate, I got "The service "Print Spooler" is preventing the machine from entering hibernation. Try stopping this service and try again." But there is no printing job whatsoever. How can I fix it. Thanks.

Just another reason to avoid hibernate/sleep modes !
Pain in the butt causing issues since their inception.

Set you power properties & forget it.
