Pipistrel Bats like my attic bedroom - help

I knew that these tiny bats were coming in via the roof eaves and using one end of an attic storage cupboard to roost, an arrangement which worked well until July when I discovered one little corpse and one alive at the bottom of a flight of stairs within the attic room itself. Why did the bats get trapped in the room? Were they inexperienced young? Since then I have left a window open and the bats happily use this but autumn rains and winter chills will come and the window cannot remain permanently open. What to do? Do pipistrels actually hibernate or only partially hibernate in our warmish winters? Help!

Sorry I can't help but I do know that all bats are protected under EU law 92/43/EEC of 21 May 1992 on the Conservation of Natural Habitats and of Wild Fauna and Flora.
