Turtles will not hibernate if the wet is to warm.
I'd be in motion with unresponsive. The water have to get really cold for them to hibernate and even later they move a bit. My son had 3 that get to be about 7 to 8" across and we kept them surrounded by a kiddy pool in the underground room in the winter next to water temps around 40 degree and they still moved around a bit.
