Hibernating Microserver Gen8 causes it to crash

I just a Microserver Gen8 and installed Windows Server Essentials 2016.

 I would like the server to hibernate overnight to save power, however when I execure shutdown -h the server appears to crash.

I connected via iLo, opened a command prompt with Admin rights and did shutdown -h
 
The screen immediately went black, but the server is still on, however iLO is not showing anything on the screen at all.
 
I basically think it is crashing or hanging? The server doesn't respond to pings or remote desktop, but the blue light is on, as are the fans, and the network LED is flashing.
 
All firmware and drivers are up to date.
 
I'm a bit stumped!
