What do you mean "night light? She shouldn't have light at night.
What is her daytime lighting schedule? If she isn't getting 12-14 hours of light per day, it can trigger hibernation attempts. Daylight from a window is usually not enough.

My hedgehog Won't Quit trying to Hibernating
My hedgehog tried first back in December to hibernate. I warmed her up and put her in a smaller cage in the bathroom because it is not drafty (I did the candle check). She also has a heating pad and a little night light. It is now late March and she is still attempting to hibernate. I turned my temp up to 78 which should be fine. In summer i kept it a constant 72 and never had this problem. Is something seriously wrong with her? What should I do? I have taken her to the vet, but I was very disappointed. She was not knowledgeable about hedgehogs at all.
