You need to investigate further. It may have been motionless as you disturbed it – hogs danger reaction is to freeze/curl up
It will not be hibernating in your box. In order to hibernate they make nests called hiberniculum – you can read more about this on the info section on this site or the BHPS site.
If it had just frozen then it may have left while you’ve been waiting for a reply. If it hasn’t left then I suggest you contact your nearest carer – the number is on this page as it may well need help
