What happens here, you try to hibernate the PC, it shuts off but then turns back on? Or never turns off to begin with and just turns on the screensaver? Are you sure you are hibernating and not just turning on the screensaver?
If Sleep of Hibernate don't work, check the vendor support site and install any power management drivers they have for your model.
