Is the swap partition still used for suspend to disk in 11.2?

Of course.

I increased my memory in my lap top since I set up 11.2, and my swap
partition is no longer adequate to accommodate it.

I'm wondering if this is going to be a problem when I try to
suspend to disk.

It might. Depends on how much is used, and how much can be compressed. To be safe, you need more⁽¹⁾ swap thanRAM.


⁽¹⁾ Definition of "more" is not double. It is "as much as needed". >:-)
