    As a test, turn off Fast Startup to see if it may be responsible. It's been known to cause issues with shut down and restart for some.

    Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8
    I just tried it but it didn't work. Something else happened though. After I disabled fast-start option, although hibernation was enabled in the respective power option, laptop didn't go into hibernation. Instead, it went to sleep. I then shut the laptop down and started it back up (not a restart though). This time hibernation option was not there! This is very random. I am sorry

    You may have to turn Hibernation back ON in the Advanced Power Options menu, after you do a switch from Fast Boot. You would probably have to reset your whole default power scheme.

Immediate restart after hibernation
My Dell XPS 17 L702x Laptop immediately restarts after hibernating. Sleep mode works well, but hibernation does not. What could I do about it? (If there is any additional information necessary, I would gladly provide it.) Thank you.
