If the cage is at a proper temperature then sleeping on the plastic under the liner shouldn't cause them to attempt to hibernate. I'm guessing the cage is getting colder periods and that's why she's going under the liner, possibly a draft. A CHE will stop this from happening as it will keep the cage at a constant temperature. Even a change of a couple of degrees can cause a hibernation attempt.
