Arrow Hibernation Question

I was just wondering what to do if the hedgehog is trying to hibernate because of light problems.

I know if they hibernate from the cold to warm them up, but what do you do if there is an attempt because of the light?

I would like to be prepared since you never know.

Same thing! Get them warmed up again, then just make sure the light stays regular afterwards. Lily had at least one attempt that I can remember due to light issues - I forgot to leave my bedroom light on for her one day, so she was in the dark all day while I was at school. I was so upset with myself! I got a light just for her cage and a timer after that so I didn't have to worry about it anymore.
