I think it is not matter of swap because I think I have 4G dedicated to
this task, at least.

How many people on this ML running my hardware/DE are facing some issues
as me for hibernate?

If I am alone I would begin to worry, but if I am "one of many" then I
hope devs. team will resolve the problem by next software updates.


1) Be sure(!) your swap partition size is bigger than your available RAM.

2) Try to hibernate and re-start.

Dunno why but I configured my swap to 3G while my phisical RAM is 4G.

marco@linux-turion64:~> sudo /usr/sbin/swapon -s
Filename Type Size Used
/dev/sda7 partition 3147772 0 -1

In any case I am not totally convinced about the rule to set swap to be
bigger than RAM.


Well as someone pointed out upthread, it will attempt compression on
what it writes to swap.

I have to resize my partition in order to verify if the cause of issue
is due my smaller swap.

Another "bad thing" is that on Gnome system settings there is not
"Suspend" option into power-management just "Hibernate" and "Shutdown"!

Can hibernate leverage it if you just add a swapfile?
