    How did you try to disable the hibernation?
    Have you tried this?:
    . Click Start, All Programs, and then right click on "Command Prompt".
    2. From the context menu click on "Run as administrator".
    3. If User Account Control prompts you to allow the action, click on Continue.
    4. In the command prompt window, type "powercfg -H OFF" (without the quotes).
    4. Close the Command Prompt window.

    If you then log off, or reboot, you should be able to delete the file.
