Any comments/instructions on this problem?

Can you hibernate/suspend the machine from the menu?

Along those lines, do you swap space setup?

Lots of people say they no longer setup swap, but to hibernate you
have to be able to push all your ram to swap.


If I'm not wrong I should have 4G of swap but I can verify this.

It is required a minimum amount of swap or just "some swap" in order to

Generally the recommended amount is: available swap space = 2 * available
RAM space.
This because when off, all of your processes virtual memory space in use
must be copied somewhere in order to recover its state in a second stage.
Note it's recommended: nothing prevents you to have a virtual memory space
in use bigger than the recommended. But usually it's a very good
Hi Marco,

Yes I knew about this general rule for swap sizing, but I meant if are
