Default How long do hedgehogs take to attempt Hibernation?

Alright, so, I'm sort-of a "Paranoid Parrot". How long does it take for your hedgehog to start hibernation? Like, I'm terrified that, say, what if one day, I'm at work/school all day, so are my dad and sister, and nobody is home. What happens if the power went out, due to the weather or something? The heat and light would be shut off in my room, so it would get dark and cold. How long would it take before my hedgie would think to attempt hibernation? If everybody was gone, there would be no way of knowing if the power was out at home or not What if I were to get home and find it too late? D':
Sorry for being so paranoid, but this has been worrying me for a while. I'll be getting my hedgie in the spring, so I want to be fully prepared. Thank you for your time!
