Either mount read-only or use the remove_hiberfile mount option.

>From the ntfs-3g manpage:

  Unlike in case of read-only mount, the read-write mount is denied if
the NTFS volume is hibernated. One needs either to resume Windows and
shutdown it properly, or use this option which will remove the Windows
hibernation file. Please note, this means that the saved Windows
session will be completely lost. Use this option for your own

Probably easier to shut windows down completely instead.
